    I was their American dream : a graphic memoir

    Gharib, Malaka, author, illustrator.

    "I Was Their American Dream is at once a coming-of-age story and a reminder of the thousands of immigrants who come to America in search for a better life for themselves and their children. The daughter of parents with unfulfilled dreams themselves, Malaka navigated her childhood chasing her parents' ideals, learning to code-switch between her family's Filipino and Egyptian customs, adapting to white culture to fit in, crushing on skater boys, and trying to understand the tension between holding onto cultural values and trying to be an all-American kid. Malaka Gharib's triumphant graphic memoir brings to life her teenage antics and illuminates earnest questions about identity and culture, while providing thoughtful insight into the lives of modern immigrants and the generation of millennial children they raised. Malaka's story is a heartfelt tribute to the American immigrants who have invested their future in the promise of the American dream."--Amazon.

    Waging a living Rosevelt's America ; Unhitched

    Three films tell personal stories of the working poor--hard-working Americans who, despite effort, determination, and playing-by-the-rules, face impossible odds in the struggle to pull themselves and their families out of poverty. Waging a living follows four workers who are "hustling backwards," working fulltime and even overtime but unable to pull ahead of rising expenses. Rosevelt's America tells the story of immigrant Rosevelt Henderson, who fled a bloody civil war in Liberia with three children and a grandchild and is grateful for any chance, however difficult and beneath his skills, to work hard enough to bring his wife and new baby to America. In Unhitched, we meet poor individuals and families living in travel trailers that now serve as permanent dwellings. For many, the opportunity to park their "homes" in Faerie Ring Campground keeps them off the dangerous streets, thus offering them the community they need to try, once again, to struggle out of poverty and pursue the "American dream."--Summaries from insert.
