    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: Some digital archive projects are social justice projects in practice and context. One such project is Andre Johnson’s digital archive, The #HMTProject, focused on the writings and study of the nineteenth-century African Methodist Episcopal Bishop Henry McNeal Turner. As a model of historical rhetoric and a digital archive, The #HMTProject provides students a means to engage historical text in understanding Bishop Turner’s use of the prophetic to embody social justice. Director Johnson along with his research team, Kimberley Travers, Dianna Watkins-Dickerson, and James Morgan III, digitized or provide links to over sixty writings, over twenty letters, and ten books or manuscripts written by Bishop Turner. The artifact included here is Johnson’s syllabus. The 21 September section of the syllabus contains embedded links and discussion questions and is an example of how to engage students in debates on the practical use of texts within the historical context.
