Up From The Trap thoroughly communicates "the trap" that African-Americans have been placed in culturally, psychologically, and economically and identifies successful pathways out of it.  African-Americans use this book in high schools, colleges, and family settings nationwide as a tool to demonstrate love towards all, especially those in their own communities, and leverage what has been gained through education and experience to create thriving institutions to uplift their race.  

Louie T. McClain II, Bestselling Author and Founder of Melanin Origins LLC, deep dives into the theories of Booker T. Washington, W.E.B. Du Bois, and Marcus Garvey regarding the wonderful paths forward for black progress in America.  The greatest leaders in the black community have fought for the people, provided for the people, encouraged, and admonished the people as well. Up From The Trap shows how many in the black race share many common themes in our lives, and how individual reflection, coupled with integrity, brings about the change we wish to see in our households and communities.
