Whistleblower Blasts "100 Black Men" Org


NEW YORK -- Hal Lanse, a teacher at the elite Eagle Academy for Young Men, founded by the 100 Black Men of America, Inc. filed a lawsuit last week against the organization that included several shocking allegations. "The principal, Osei Owusu-Afriyie, forced me to remain in a basement room denying me bathroom access."

This, Lanse claims, was due to his union activism and the fact that he spoke out to the press when Owusu-Afriyie ordered teachers to change failing grades to passing. "I was illegally transferred out of the school," Lanse said. "When the Department of Education sent me back there, Owusu-Afriyie forced me to stay in the basement and personally closed the door on me on a day that the room reeked of vomit."

"My client was also illegally suspended without pay for two weeks and not provided with COBRA health coverage, as proscribed by law," said Linda Fox, Lanse's attorney. "The 100 Blacks proudly boast on their website that they founded the Eagle Academy," Lanse said, "But I have been harassed and punished for exposing the school's questionable practices."
