Synopsis: Vincent Beach seems an ordinary man from ordinary beginnings. Look deeper, however, and you'll discover a special human being. Vincent left his native Jamaica in 1944 and enlisted in the Royal Air Force. Yearning to be a jazz musician, he bought an old clarinet and practiced. Through his perseverance, he found his way to America and a career for 22 years as a bandsman in the U.S. Air Force. Becoming an educator, he served the children on the Navajo Reservation in Arizona, and later enjoyed teaching in community college. Share the joys and woes of an ordinary man in his storied autobiography.

From the Inside Flap: His mother was Miss Rosa, his father Mas T. Their legacy was love, discipline, and aphorisms, including ...Don’t throw away your stick till you cross the river.Vincent Beach has crossed many rivers, beginning in 1944 when he left his rural Jamaican home and enlisted in the Royal Air Force. Later, when he immigrated to the United States, he had little education and even less money. What he did have, however, was a dream of becoming a jazz musician. Undeterred by the fact he had no musical training, Vincent joined the U.S. Air Force and talked his way into a 22-year career as a military bandsman.After the service, a second career as a counselor to youngsters on an isolated Navajo reservation taught him as much about himself as he taught the students about what to expect in life and how to pursue their goals. Along the way he found and lost love, and discovered love once again. He and his new wife Annie recently received the “2003 National Excellence in Parenting Award” from the National Parents’ Day Council. Their life is a testament to the ability to overcome racism.
