In short:

--- Quote ---A former student at Morehouse College in Atlanta filed an HIV discrimination lawsuit against the historically Black menís liberal arts school seeking over $3 million in emotional distress damages, reports The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The student, who remains anonymous and graduated in May 2020, claims that he disclosed his HIV-positive status in his application essay to the schoolís Cinema, Television and Emerging Media Studies program. According to the lawsuit, a faculty member said the program was too demanding for a student with a health issue such as HIV. As a result, the student was not admitted into the program.

The college did not offer a comment to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution because, the school said, it doesnít discuss pending legal cases.
