The Southmost area of Brownsville, the southernmost populated tip of Texas along the banks of the Rio Grande, holds a tight-knit community of immigrant families whose cultural heritage is expressed daily in their traditions, celebrations, music, gardening, religion, lifestyle, and most importantly, food. Along a strip of Southmost Road, locally known as “Taco Boulevard,” lies more than 20 locally-owned taquerias along the main artery of the neighborhood. Containing rich photographs by Chuy Benitez, the Taquerías of Southmost photography exhibit provides an entrance into the rich cultural traditions of an often closed and discriminated population.
