Svoboda, Frederic J. “Who Was That Black Man?: A Note on Eugene Bullard and The Sun Also Rises.” Hemingway Review 17, no. 2 (Spring 1998): 105-10.

Annotation

Source study contending that the drummer at Zelli’s jazz club is modeled after Eugene Bullard, an African American boxer, musician, and fighter pilot. Svoboda parallels Jake’s life with Bullard’s, and argues that Bullard’s inclusion complicates oversimplified interpretations of Hemingway’s attitudes toward race.
