For instance,’’When the black students, known as the ‘’Little Rock Nine,’’ attempted to enter Central High School, segregationists threatened to hold protests and physically block the students from entering the school ’’(Source B). This shows that all of the segregationists did not believe the fortunate African American students were as smart or worthy of going to school with Caucasians. As well, this exhibits how much anti-negros would do just to prevent what they thought was wrong from happening, which included violence.In addition, even though most people disagreed with the ‘’Little Rock Nine’’ from going to school, a few agreed,’’The rest of the country seemed to side with the black students...For the next few months, the African American students attended school under armed supervision.Even so, they faced physical and verbal abuse from their white peers’’(Source B).This demonstrates how people got together and protested along with the African American students on how the segregationists were being racist and treating them like they were nonexistent.This also shows how the segregationists were ignoring the fact that others were disagreeing with them, but they were mainly focused on being inconsiderate and treating the ‘’Little Rock Nine’’ poorly because they were Negros. After All, the Little Rock Showdown displayed how the segregationists treated the Negro students unequally because they were just as qualified to go to school with white

In the poem and memoir, they both show courage but show them in a different way. Sarah influenced the children’s hearts in the park to stop bullying and for them to all be friends. On the other hand, Ana influenced herself and part of her family to work hard and have the courage and be determined. In “Making Sarah Cry” it states, “Determination on her face, Sticking up for one of her own tormentors And willing to take his place.” She is trying to show everyone in the playground that you can stand up to your bully and that having courage will make you stronger and better than before.
