In the story To Thee I See: From picking in the fields of Texas to cooking for dignitaries on U.S. Navy ships, a journey I wouldn't change, Arby Hambric chronicles his life from 1926-2014, when his early childhood years were plagued with surviving in a Jim Crow-era rural Texas to how fighting in three war eras in a segregated Navy turned out to be both rewarding and disheartening, but in spite of feeling overlooked after 20 years of service, he utilized the lessons learned to conquer public humiliation, overcome personal rejection, and challenge a broken political system. This book paints a true picture of deplorable restrictions to moments in history that have never been documented before, and provides a detailed analysis of the timeless wisdom that has been learned, exercised, and justified by Mr. Hambric.
In To Thee I See Arby Hambric narrates recounts of how the humiliation of merely surviving in the racist south and serving in a segregated Navy prepared him to battle illegal church activities, challenge unjust politics in his community, and overcome personal setbacks while continuing to seek the life his grandmother envisioned he was destined for–one with meaning, purpose, and dignity.
