Elizabeth Merlino The two primary sources that I read were Black Panther Party and Gay Power Comes to Sheridan Square. These two primary sources are so different. Not just because the context is different but by the way they are formatted and by the way they are going about the problems that they have and by the way that they are evoking feelings out of the readers. Clearly the context is much different. The Black Panther Party is about how blacks want to have equal rights and what the want in return for all the injustice that they have been given. The Gay Power Comes to Sheridan Square was about how the protests went and how the future is changing. The format between the two documents was also very different. The Gay Power Comes to Sheridan Square was written like a story and it showed everything that happened. With the Black Panther Party document, all that was written were demands that they wanted and their reasoning to support it.

The Black Panther Party should take notes from the Gay Power Comes to Sheridan Square....
