Singing Rumpelstiltskin.............................................................................................................
 

The book Singing Rumpelstiltskin is available as ebook in English and Dutch. It is the story of the racism that Ben Sims has encountered in his life, in his youth, in the Air Force, in his career. And how he responded to these adversities to empower himself in order to wake up with a smile and the prospect to have the best day of his life, every day. But the book is also filled with music.

“The most enlightening book I have ever read about what it is like being Black in America. The racism that Ben Sims experienced is heartbreaking, but he overcame it with his indomitable courage and fighting spirit. I really enjoyed reading the book and highly recommend it.”
Ako Shichiji, Manager Administrative Services, WABG Radio International
