Summary Note This story takes Okoye to America for the very first time. 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. Caught between duty to her country and listening to her own heart, Okoye must find her own way and determine the type of Dora Milaje - and woman - she wants to be. In this fish-out-of-water story, the author combines the high-stakes adventure of the world of the Black Panther with the grounded and real-world challenges that bring her work to life.
