By OKHA, the queer + Black book club

OKHA bring works by African, Caribbean and Afro-Latinx people to the forefront. We provide a space for book lovers and those who never really read to come together and also create a space where we can share perspectives, learnings and experiences orally. Let's analyse, educate and build community one tale at a time.
