The Social Justice History and Education electronic archive (project of the Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities, University of Virginia) aims to provide reliable scholarly documentary and simulations of the United States Civil Rights Movement to encourage critical analysis of social responsibility, social change, and social justice.

It will be the first of its kind in showing the way for searchable electronic archives of historical, socio-political important works. This archive will present historical primary documents, photographs, legal records, and interactive simulations for teachers, students, and researchers. An online comprehensive curriculum that includes attitudinal surveys and knowledge tests on social justice will be available for elementary, middle, and high school students.

The curriculum will assist teacher practitioners and teacher educators in preparing students for social responsibility, social change, and social justice. Birmingham is selected as the major overarching set of events to frame this archive because of the role of young children who peacefully demonstrated for their human rights and it calls attention to the tragic deaths of four little girls because of racism.
