Okoye to the People by Ibi Zoboi

Okoye to the People by Ibi Zoboi and illustrated by Noa Denmon

Okoye is a new recruit for T’Chaka’s royal guard: the Dora Milaje. Known for their loyalty and warrior abilities, the Dora are respected and revered in Okoye’s home country of Wakanda. But when Okoye is sent on her very first mission—to America—she’ll learn that her status as a Dora means nothing to New Yorkers and her expectations for the world outside of her own quickly fall apart. Chosen to accompany King T’Chaka on a humanitarian mission, Okoye finds herself trying to help teens dealing with addiction and gentrification in a forgotten neighbourhood in Brooklyn.
