One similarity is how they both showed a struggle during the time, and how it was forced. In the photo, it's clear the situation is forced, from the harassment which shows how no one wants to be in the situation. The cartoon clearly shows this by the title, the soldiers shoving the children together, and forcing the two races to coincide without judgement.
Another similarity between the two images, besides the obvious, as there's two different races, is the military presence. Although it is more obvious in the cartoon (the soldiers pushing the children together), in the far background of the photo, there are a few military officers among the people. This also adds to the enforcement of the situation.
Another difference is how the cartoon mainly focuses on the enforcement of the Civil Rights Movement, while the photo mainly focuses on the harassment, judgement, and discrimination during the time. The three components of the cartoon (the title, photo, and quote), all add to the people being in the situation, when they didn't want to. The photo mainly shows the discrimination taking place, with the pointing and the looks given.
