In the years after the Civil War, African-American performers began to appear on the American popular stage in ever-greater numbers. In the 1870s, performers and composers such as Sam Lucas and Dan Lewis appeared in touring minstrel troupes composed of African American performers. Lucas is particularly noteworthy in that he was the first African-American actor to play Uncle Tom in Uncle Tom's Cabin. He also toured with the Hyers Sisters in the play Out of Bondage.
