Ash Brown speaks with Melanin Origins founder Louie T. McClain II about this groundbreaking brand that celebrates the accomplishments of historical african americans. The journey to the top has not been easy but the blessings continue to sprinkle down.
More on this brand:
Louie T. McClain II is a resident of Arlington, Texas and holds a B.S. in Criminal Justice from Pensacola Christian College. It was in Pensacola where Louie first discovered his passion in life-coaching troubled youth. While volunteering with Florida Department of Juvenile Justice, Mr. McClain took on an initiative to make tutoring a court-ordered sanction and found success with Juvenile Court Judges and Probation Officers alike. Louie went on to establish Humane Resources, Inc., a 501(c)3 organization with a mission to assist the formerly incarceration with job placement, a couple years later. Shortly after that, Project: Liberia Smile was formed which gave college age students an opportunity attend universities in Liberia, West Africa.
As a result, nine scholarships were granted over the course of two years. Other than his Passion Projects, Louie has over seven years of full time employment in Juvenile Justice, and is currently employed by American Airlines. Furthermore, Mr. McClain is a proud father of two beautiful children named Serenity and Noah. Louie is intrigued by the resilience and tenacity of African American leaders who stand for truth, justice, and overcoming any obstacles placed in their way. Thus, he decided to create Melanin Origins, LLC to share messages of lesser-known African American pioneers to the children of the world and empower them to aspire for excellence and chase their dreams regardless of any complications they may face.
