Featuring exceptional large format photographic portraits by photographer Sam Comen and personal stories of 29 new U.S. citizens, The Newest Americans exhibition encourages us to consider the U.S. immigration process through the eyes of new citizens representing more than 20 origin countries. Interviews and photography were conducted in the moments immediately prior to and following their naturalization ceremonies in February and March of 2017.

The exhibition encourages all of us to actively engage by bringing our own reflections on their citizenship. You can learn more about the photographs and narratives presented both in English and Spanish. This exhibition will remain on view at Skyline College Library (Building 5, 2nd floor) through March 31, 2023. The Library is open Monday through Friday. 

Skyline College Library is pleased to be able to host this exhibition through a President’s Innovation Fund (PIF) award. It also forms part of the College’s Critical Global Citizenship Education Project. Please contact Pia Walawalkar, Equity and Outreach Librarian, with any questions
