Fighting Fascist Spain -- The Exhibits is an online collection and interpretive exhibits that recover, preserve, and make US Hispanic antifascist print culture available. FFSTE visualizes workers' protests fashioned by the alternative intellectual, cultural, and political traditions and institutions: grassroots associations, the alternative press, and the comic theater. All of which provided opportunities for antifascist activism in the United States.

Periodical research diversifies antifascist studies by including migrants and radical workers in the cultural and historical discourse. Therefore, FFSTE has become a US Hispanic Antifascist hub to support antifascist researchers, descendants, and the general interested public in their efforts to:

  • recover information on victims of fascism and their allies
  • express historical justice
  • dignify the victims' and antifascists' voices and perspectives

The Exhibit does not merely recover evidence of workers’ antifascist visual culture but helps articulate how their politics and culture shaped knowledge from below. This digital collection recovers grassroots efforts and local and global networks of political protest and solidarity. Texts and images in US Spanish-language periodicals include but are not limited to:

  • Print Culture: editors and regular sections and contributors
  • Extraordinary Communities: announcements and photographs of rallies and demonstrations, photos and obituaries of demonstrators
  • Antifascist Stage: announcements of cultural fundraisers and antifascist plays, photographs, and obituaries of participants
  • Graphic Arts: drawings, photographs, and obituaries of artists
