present the free book launch of 
BED 26: MEMOIR OF AN AFRICAN MAN’s ASYLUM IN UNITED STATES by Edafe Okporo

Based on a true life story, “Bed 26” narrates the experiences of Nigerian and West African gay, bisexual men and the reason they are forced to flee from their home country. The book also talks about the experiences of immigrants in the Elizabeth Detention Center and the gap between the perceived American dream and its reality of racism, discrimination and phobia for people of color in America.
