Synopsis: An Immigrant Class documents the immigrant experience through 20 first-person stories and duotone photographs of recent immigrants to Chicago from around the world. Each immigrant reveals the unique elements of life before immigration, the circumstances that motivated the move, the experience of immigrating, and the impressions of life and identity that continue to unfold and change in the United States. Through the voices and images of those who have made this journey, An Immigrant Class shares the hopes, fears, tragedies and triumphs that make up the complexity of the immigrant experience. Some share their expectations and encounters with success, freedom and opportunity. Others tell of their disappointments, frustrations and regrets, but all have come, like many before and many after them, to make a new home in the United States.
About the Author: Jeff Libman received his undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan, where he developed a non-profit organization, Michigan Video Productions, engaged in video production and student training in all aspects of video production.

After leaving New York City, Jeff taught English in Nepal, volunteered for CARE in Bangladesh, investigated the logging industry and its impact on indigenous populations in Malaysia, and visited a United Nations refugee camp for Vietnamese refugees in Indonesia. Upon his return to the United States, Jeff became the Executive Director of the Tibetan Resettlement Project-Chicago, an organization that coordinated the resettlement of Tibetan refugees from India and Nepal to Chicago. Jeff has been a facilitator and guide for Facing History and Ourselves, a teacher training organization. He has been a small business owner and currently teaches English as a Second Language at Truman College, one of the City Colleges of Chicago. In addition, he is an acclaimed singer-songwriter.
