Primary sources are crucial in documenting the histories and experiences of people of color, marginalized communities, and subcultures. They provide valuable insights and perspectives that may not be represented in mainstream historical accounts. Often, the first-hand accounts of marginalized people are missing from history, and publications like The Hermana Resist Zine Anthology help to fill this void for future historians and readers. By supporting primary source publications like ours, you are helping to preserve and amplify the stories and experiences of these important groups, ensuring that their voices are not lost to history.
