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.
