THE PLAN

Adult; Self-Help; (Market)

2020 has been a year like no other. It has brought us unparalleled danger, as well as unparalleled opportunity for real change. With the uprising triggered by George Floyd’s death at the hands of Minneapolis police officers still going strong, there have been many heartening changes to local municipal laws around the country. But we all know it’s not nearly enough. To produce real justice for the Black community, we must have equal economic power and equal access to education – and those are goals that seem lightyears away. Although police reform is a very hot topic and deserves national attention, there are other subjects we must not ignore while we have the national and even global stage. If these matters are not addressed, social justice and progress, in totality, will never be reached! Fortunately, Reco McDaniel McCambry has a plan. As one of the top entrepreneurs and financial educators in America, he’s spent his professional life helping Black families to initiate a foundation for generational wealth and motivating Black entrepreneurs to realize seemingly impossible goals. Now, McCambry brings his financial and motivational skills to the cause of racial justice. THE PLAN contained within these pages includes a blueprint that anyone can take to forward economic equality, fairer legislation, and transformational change for our black communities nationwide; even across the world.
Reviews
In this accessible, encouraging guide, CEO McCambry (The Fatherless Father) calls for his fellow Black Americans to create “true justice, power, and prosperity” for all Black people. The book, which begins with a dedication to a 13-page list of Black people killed by police, discusses “steps each of us can take today, and every day, to transform our communities and claim the prosperity that is our birthright” through ending police murder of Black people, building up Black men and boys, creating prosperity for the next generation, becoming politically involved in making lasting legal changes, and “uplift[ing] the national and global Black communities—not just individuals and isolated families.” Each chapter begins with an overview of its topic (e.g., historical Black-owned banks, recent police brutality, the effects of racism on self-efficacy) and activists’ proposals regarding issues like police brutality and reparations; some also include brief profiles of exemplars like Malcolm X and Harriet Tubman.

By using pronouns such as "we" and "us," McCambry builds a sense of camaraderie with the reader. His tone is inviting and encouraging, rather than preachy. The well-organized chapters, accessible explanations of concepts, and clear prose make this book approachable and appealing.

While McCambry writes approvingly of Malcolm X and the authors of the 8 to Abolition platform, ultimately he’s focused in this volume on practical changes related to parenting, voting, financial literacy, and so on. This isn’t aimed at radical readers or calling to burn it all down; McCambry clearly wants his readers to be safe and thriving. While his focus on business and money may not initially appeal to all readers, McCambry’s love for Black people and sincere desire to help others shine through on every page of this book.

Takeaway: McCambry’s approachable guide lovingly encourages Black Americans to seek the justice, power, and prosperity they deserve.

Great for fans of: Martin Luther King Jr., James Baldwin, Adrienne Maree Brown.

While reading The Plan: I have become enraged and ready to fight the right way. I have been flabbergasted because of the extent of disenfranchisement that we as a people experience in this country, even though I love the ideal of this country, to this day. The too few success stories do not bury the problem. I have teared up feeling the pain and confusion of the suffering simply because of greed and the misplaced hatred of a skin color. But I am also inspired and encouraged because I absolutely know that what the author is talking about, is possible.

Reco McDaniel McCambry has written an insightful, enlightening, extremely educational work here. It is no nonsense and straight forward. It promises a lot but with Faith married to discipline and an intention to see it through - it can be actualized.

I can see that for some it may feel overwhelming, especially with the lay out of the plan for Generational Wealth. But as He says, ‘We must get comfortable with being uncomfortable’ and begin to make the changes we need for our community.

Do yourself and your family a favor, invest in this book today!
