Anatomy of a Hate Crime is the story
behind the vicious attack and murder of 21-year-old gay college student
Matthew Shepard. Premiering January 10, it launched MTV's yearlong
Fight For Your Rights:Take a Stand
Against Discrimination campaign.
After the show's premiere, history was made when
MTV aired 18
commercial-free hours of
celebrities reading accounts of
hundreds of hate crime incidents
from across the country.
