A decade after a Morehouse College student beat another student with a baseball bat because he believed the other young man was gay, the all-male historically black Atlanta campus is set to offer its first class in LGBT studies.

It was in November 2002 when Morehouse student Aaron Price viciously attacked fellow student Gregory Love with a baseball bat because he perceived Love to be gay.

Love, who said he was not gay, suffered a fractured skull and nearly died; Price was sentenced to 10 years in prison. Price had his sentence reduced to seven years in 2006 after a Fulton County judge deemed 10 years behind bars too harsh.
