Protectors of Wakanda: A History and Training Manual of the Dora Milaje by Karama Horne
Virtual book launch event with The Black Bookstore Collective with Karama Horne interviewed by Ibi Zoboi will be made available with purchase of this title via a link.
Learn what it takes to become a member of the Dora Milaje--Wakanda's elite, all-female guard--with this exclusive in-world history and training manual. The world of Wakanda, a technologically advanced society with a deep history and culture, prides itself on tradition, honor, courage, and strength. There is no greater symbol of that strength than Wakanda's leader, The Black Panther. But protection of that symbol is tasked to the Dora Milaje--a team of women serving as Wakanda's special forces. For the first time, step inside this secret society of women warriors and discover what it's like to train as member of the Dora Milaje. Recruited from across all tribes, the selected initiates undergo intense training, both physical and mental. Passed down from elder Dora to initiates, with entries by General Okoye, Princess Shuri, and Queen Mother Ramonda, Protectors of Wakanda reveals not only the history and foundation of the unit, but collects the strategy, weapons, and combat training as well as the code of honor and nuances of service required to protect the Black Panther and the nation of Wakanda. Added commentary and guidance from notable warriors, such as Mistress Zola, Ayo, Aneka and M'yra, fill the margins of this treasured text. Find out if you have what it takes to become a member of the Dora Milaje and bring honor to your tribe!

The Black Bookstore Collective was formed in 2020 out of a desire to form a closer connection between 100+ Black owned booksellers across the country. In the wake of the devastating murder of George Floyd, we rose to the occasion to provide literary food for people seeking to understand the country's history of race and racism. We processed an unprecedented number of orders and have co-sponsored many author events with publishers.
Afriware Books, Co was founded in 1993 and has provided a platform for authors and artists who instill us with a sense of cultural pride. We look forward to partnering with your institution to curate books for classrooms and libraries.
PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A VIRTUAL EVENT BUT WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO PURCHASE PROTECTORS OF WAKANDA: A HISTORY AND TRAINING OF THE DORA MILAJE FROM THE PARTICIPATING BOOKSELLERS LISTED ABOVE. ALL PROCEEDS FROM THIS EVENT GO TOWARDS SUPPORTING INDEPENDENT BLACK BOOKSELLERS.
