Penn State has not made a public comment about the case.

STATE COLLEGE (KDKA) — A Penn State professor who is Black is accusing the university of racial discrimination.

In a federal lawsuit, Errol Henderson’s attorney says Henderson was barred from teaching during the 2019-20 academic year and was banned from all department meetings and events for about two years.

He also claims his race was a factor in those decisions.

The university is not commenting.
