Compare and Contrast
Both articles, "Showdown in Selma" and "Marching from Selma to Montgomery in 1965" talk about the Pettus Bridge and the march. Also, in the same way, they talk a bit about after Bloody Sunday. As well as, they talk about people watching and filming TV. Although there are things that make these two articles alike there are also quite a few differences. One article mainly supports the people in the march, however the other article supports the cause. Another reason they are different is, in one article is secondary, because the story was passed down by people, books, internet etc, on the other hand "Marching from Selma to Montgomery in 1965" is primary because the person was there when it happened. "Showdown in Selma" talks about how whites tried to stop blacks from voting after the 15th amendment came in and the "impossible to answer" questions they gave to the blacks, so they wouldn't get a chance to vote. If they got on answer wrong they where disqualified. On the contrary, the other article is mainly about whites that joined will never be the same and talks about whites that change their mind on how they think about blacks. It also has more quotes from Andy Young, which hold a strong meaning.
