Most of us will be glad to usher 2020 out the door. With a global pandemic, lockdowns, an economic collapse, and natural disasters, it's a year that probably won't be missed. But some good things did happen here at Yaupon Brothers that we want to share with you.
The Delta, and Mississippi in general, is also a land that is confronting a troubled past and making strides to build a brighter, more equitable future. The most famous example of this is the State's recently-adopted flag, which replaced one that was made up partly of the confederate battle insignia. The new state flag, called "The New Magnolia," was the result of public pressure across a bipartisan front. It was as if the state knew it had to move forward in a new way. This flag, along with the the musical heritage of the Delta, and the legend of Robert Johnson, was an inspiration for a massive mural by artist Devin Liston, which now resides on the side of the iconicGround Zero Blues Club, which is owned by Bill Luckett and his longtime friend,Morgan Freeman. The mural is aptly named Midnight at the Crossroads, and serves as the label art of one of the first Yaupon blends to come out of the Delta Arts District,Delta Chai.
