The Immigrant Experience: Voices of Identity and Assimilation

In this presentation, Jeff Libman examines the human complexity of today's immigration. Distinguished against the statistics, politics, and policy related to immigration issues, this program looks at the emotional, physical, and psychological challenges facing immigrants to the United States from around the world. Utilizing photographs and oral histories, Libman focuses on questions of identity as immigrants navigate a new world, learn a new language, experience a new culture, and meet the demands of life surrounded by new people, expectations, and values.
