Inside the Creative Economy: Brice Media

The following is a guest post from Talamieka Brice of Brice Media, and serves to demonstrate her voice as a member of Mississippi’s Creative Economy. For more information on the Creative Economy, see mscreativeeconomy.com.
The first story I ever illustrated was my own. My tools of choice were crayon and construction paper. Growing up in the small knit community of Kilmichael, imagination was my favorite friend. Schoolmates and I gathered at days end and proudly displayed our masterpieces. We challenged each other to do ‘cooler’ drawings and soaked up our education in the Mississippi sun.
Years passed and more of us traded our crayons for pencils or put them down altogether. We found other ways to tell our stories. We wore colorful outfits and crazy hair. We expressed ourselves in all shades and hues, our collective as colorful as the crayons we once held. Our uniqueness like my name, Talamieka, became a proud part of our identities.
When the chapter of high school came to an end, I accepted an academic scholarship to Jackson State University. There I met fellow artist, Charles Brice. He became my husband, an awesome father to our child and my business partner in Brice Media.
Brice Media was created on the battlefields of Afghanistan. After a day of fighting and years of witnessing and photographing death and destruction, Charles, then a U.S. Army photojournalist, had a deep desire to tell a different story of the living.
Together we used the tools that we had to craft a new chapter a new journey into our lives together. Through photography, graphic design and web design, we’ve created international award winning visual stories for our clients. We’ve worked for legendary jazz artist Cassandra Wilson, the U.S. Wheelchair Fencing Team, Belk, Mangia Bene Catering as well as photographing Kim Kardashian.
We’ve been featured as one of Graphic Design USA’s 2013 People to Watch – the only Mississippians in the 50 year history of the magazine to do so. We were also featured as 2013 Power Couple in BOOM Magazine and in dozens of local, regional and international publications, including Smashing Magazine, an international graphic design publication based in Germany.
In some ways, this publicity is gratifying after all our hard work. However, as award winning storytellers and visual artists, it’s our duty to more accurately represent our beloved and beautiful Mississippi, while dispelling the negative caricature of our homeland that is believed by many.
It’s the left-behind pieces of any civilization that tell the stories of the souls it inhabited. It is in that spirit that we vowed to create a more accurate picture of our state through Mississippi2.
The soul and grit of Mississippi’s people has inspired the world. Our artists are legendary. The paradox of beauty and tragedy is part of the life blood of Mississippians. It flows through our veins, emerging in beautiful hues on canvases, soulful and unforgettable falsettos, ebbing and drifting like our mighty river and moving generations of many.
Mississippi2 is a platform for a rainbow of individuals to voice their opinions nationally, show their true colors and beauty of our state as well as take control of the stories being told about our land.
The logo is intentionally hard to read. As William Faulkner said, “To understand the world, you must first understand a place like Mississippi.” We captured this concept in the design of Mississippi2 logo.
Let’s start a new narrative embracing both our beauty and our flaws, to better this land for the next generation. Pick up your instruments and join us. You can always drop me a line, or suggestion, at email@example.com.
EAT, STAY, PLAY: INDIANOLA
When most people stroll into Indianola, they’ve got two things on their mind- Mississippi ...
When most people stroll into Indianola, they’ve got two things on their mind- Mississippi Blues and B.B. King. As the place where Riley B. King grew up and later claimed as home on stages around the world under his new name "Beale Street Blues Boy" - B.B. King, and stocked with blues joint after blues joint, Indianola draws blues enthusiasts who travel the globe to experience the history of blues music in this small Mississippi Delta town.
For Mississippi food products, art, and antiques, a stop at The Crown Restaurant is a must. Their Catfish Paté has been named Outstanding Hors d'oeuvres at the National Association for the Specialty Food Trade's Fancy Food Show. A Delta tradition since 1976, the Crown has been featured on Food Network, Travel Channel's Taste of America, Southern Living, USA Today, Bon Appetit, and The Washington Post.
Located across the street from the B.B. King Museum, The Blue Biscuit is a cool old storefront with a relaxing atmosphere. The Blue Biscuit offers elegant, serious gourmet fare, authentic Southern soul food, award winning BBQ and even a "Redneck Fish Fry," but they can work with you to execute any menu you desire - uptown or down home.
The Blue Biscuit Bungalows have been described as, "literally and figuratively between the Alluvian and the Shack Up Inn." They are within easy walking distance of all area clubs, downtown businesses, shops and restaurants and are literally a few steps from the BB King Blues Museum. They have all the comforts of home plus vintage furnishings and a touch of whimsy and fun.
The life of B.B. King provides the backdrop for the B.B. King Museum and Delta Interpretive Center to share the rich cultural heritage of the Mississippi Delta. Through an authentic presentation of music, art, artifacts and video, along with our educational programming, the Museum honors its namesake as an internationally renowned and influential musician, celebrates Delta blues music heritage and the local culture, encourages and inspires young artists and musicians, and enriches the lives of Delta youth and all who visit the museum campus.
Club Ebony, one of the South’s most important African American nightclubs, was built just after the end of World War II by Indianola entrepreneur Johnny Jones. Under Jones and successive owners, the club showcased Ray Charles, Count Basie, B. B. King, Bobby Bland, Little Milton, Albert King, Willie Clayton, and many other legendary acts. Club Ebony is one of the last remaining juke joints in Mississippi and is owned and operated by the B.B. King Museum and Delta Interpretive Center.

EAT, STAY, PLAY: GREENWOOD

Beginning where the rolling hills meet the lush flatlands, Greenwood is in the heart of the Mississippi Delta. It’s history, as striking as its landscape, will continue to fascinate generations. From three graves marking the resting place of a blues icon, to three rivers for the adventurous traveler to explore, to new Delta cuisine at one of the hamlet’s many interesting eateris there is something for every traveler.
Lusco’s is one of Mississippi’s oldest, most distinctive restaurants and just celebrated their 80th birthday. Lusco’s emerged from a grocery store into a restaurant and is a go to stop for Delta culinary enthusiasts for succulent steak, whole broiled pompano and crisp onion rings.
Delta Bistropub features the award-winning cuisine of James Beard-nominated Chef and co-owner, Taylor Bowen Ricketts. Chef Taylor’s unique cuisine is presented in an equally unique setting, a modern, contemporary interior tucked inside a beautifully restored historic building located one block north of The Alluvian hotel in downtown Greenwood.
Giardina’s, one of the Mississippi Delta’s most historic restaurants, was founded in 1936 by Joseph Giardina. A unique blend of sophistication and warmth, Giardina’s is the perfect setting for any event. Featuring steaks, seafood and Italian cuisine, Giardina’s atmosphere is old world elegant but dress is laid-back “Delta casual.”
Cross the sleek threshold of The Alluvian, and enter a realm with a nouveau-chic ambiance normally reserved for world cities. Created by world renowned architects and designers, this boutique hotel has claimed iconic status with its modern design. The Alluvian is an alluring alternative to the ordinary.
Whether you’re traveling the “Blues Highway” in search of the spirits of the early blues legends or just seeking to escape from the hustle and bustle of the modern world for a bit of serenity, Tallhatchie Flats’ old-time farm houses have what you need. Located on the banks of the Tallahatchie River on a Delta cotton plantation, these two to four-room dwellings are preserved examples of the small rural homes that once dotted the Delta countryside where so many great blues artists were born and raised and wandered.
Visit Webster’s Food & Drink, where the locals go to hear live music with great food and plenty of libations to whet your whistle after a trek across the Delta flatlands.
Take a tour of Robert Johnson’s three graves. Legend claims Johnson sold his soul to the Devil at the crossroads of Highways 61 and 49 so he could play the Delta blues. Supposedly poisoned by a jealous husband at a juke joint at Three Forks where Highways 82 and 49E intersect, Johnson was taken to a shotgun house at the Star of the West Plantation north of Greenwood, where he lingered for several days before dying on August 16, 1938, at the age of 27. Johnson’s death and burial created a mystery almost as great as his talent’s sudden appearance. His death certificate says Johnson is buried at Zion Church — but which one?

EAT, STAY, PLAY: NATCHEZ
Natchez is the oldest continuous settlement on the Mississippi River, celebrating its tricentennial ...
Natchez is the oldest continuous settlement on the Mississippi River, celebrating its tricentennial in 2016 with events all year. Lonely Planet named it #2 on its list of 10 best destinations in America, describing the 444-mile Natchez Trace as “the state’s cycling and recreational jewel.” The charming town is also famous for its breathtaking historic homes, several of which have been converted into bed & breakfast accommodations or are open for tours. Natchez has been named one of “100 Must-See Destinations” by Life Magazine and is included in the New York Times bestselling book, “1000 Places to See Before You Die.”
King’s Tavern specializes in wood-fired flatbreads (try the bestselling brisket flatbread!) and craft cocktails. Operated by well-known chef Regina Charboneau and her husband, Doug, King’s Tavern is housed in the oldest building in the Mississippi Territory and is said to be haunted. Next door at Charboneau Distillery , the first official rum distillery in the state, take a tour and pick up some craft spirits.
If the words “Knock-You-Naked margaritas” intrigue you, stop by Fat Mama’s Tamales. This Natchez institution serves tamales and other Mexican fare, along with housemade fire and ice pickles (cold and crunchy, with a kick). When the weather is nice, enjoy your tamales and margaritas on the shaded deck.
The ambience of Cotton Alley Cafe, which serves lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch, is cozy and relaxed. Try the daily specials, the Cotton Alley Pasta (chicken, artichokes, capers, and lemon cream sauce) and the strawberry cake. If you’re a vegetarian or are watching what you eat, let the staff know and they’ll accommodate you.
Historic inns abound in Natchez, and two of the best known are four-star Dunleith Historic Inn and Monmouth Historic Inn, both listed as National Historic Landmarks. Dunleith, an 1856 Greek Revival mansion with stately white columns, sits on 40 landscaped acres. Its Castle Restaurant & Pub is located in the original carriage house and stables. Monmouth is surrounded by 26 acres of manicured gardens, with rooms in antebellum decor. At its upscale Restaurant 1818, named for the year Monmouth was built, you will dine in the original men’s and ladies’ parlors under authentic period crystal gasoliers.
Those who enjoy a lively atmosphere can take in music, trivia night, or karaoke at Bowie’s Tavern and head upstairs to a room with a jacuzzi tub and views of the Mississippi River.
The Mark Twain Guest House is located above Under-The-Hill Saloon (see below), with three rooms available for music lovers and night owls. Weeknights are quiet, save for the occasional steamboat on the River, but on weekends the live music may last until 2 a.m.
Biscuits & Blues features live entertainment in an intimate setting by solo artists or small musical groups, typically playing blues or acoustic guitar. Performances take place during dinner hours, when the restaurant serves up Southern fare, but often run later. Call (601) 446-9922 for an upcoming schedule of events.
Smoot’s Grocery is the brainchild of Dub Rogers, owner of Steampunk Coffee Roasters. Originally a family grocery founded in 1939, it turned into a juke joint on weekends. Smoot’s closed in the 70’s and fell into disrepair, but Rogers restored and reopened it in 2015 as a juke joint. All building materials are reclaimed, and the stage for live music is front and center.
Built around the turn of the 19th century, Under-the-Hill Saloon is the place to make friends with local characters, peruse the memorabilia on the walls, and listen to live music. Sit in one of the rocking chairs on the front porch for a beautiful view of the Mississippi River.

Tupelo is known by music fans the world over for its most famous native son: Elvis Presley. With fresh, local food and a tradition of live music, Tupelo has plenty to offer its visitors. The city recently committed $11.5 million to build a bike- and pedestrian-friendly trail connecting the downtown area to the Birthplace and East Tupelo. Southern Living Magazine named Tupelo to its list of “50 Best Places in the South Now.”
The Neon Pig Cafe won Thrillist’s “Best Burger in the U.S,” by international reader vote. Thrillist’s description of the Famous Smash will make your mouth water: “The aged filet, ribeye, strip steak, sirloin, and Benton’s bacon blend gets a dose of savory hoisin and tangy Mississippi comeback sauce, plus melted cheddar, pickled onions, pickles, and more of that smoky bacon. It all goes on a hefty ciabatta bun that’s built to soak up all those delicious juices.” The Neon Pig has a butcher shop and small market onsite.
Kermit’s Outlaw Kitchen on Main Street is the sister restaurant to The Neon Pig. Its menus change weekly based on the current harvest from local farms. They include items like Coriander Braised Brisket and Fresh Parm Fries.
Located conveniently next to the Hilton Garden Inn (see below), the Fairpark Grill serves lunch, dinner, and Saturday and Sunday brunch. A warm atmosphere and friendly staff will make you feel at home as you enjoy menu items like local craft beer, Baja fish tacos, and homemade Snickers bar pie.
Hilton Garden Inn, 363 E. Main Street
Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites, 1612 McClure Drive
The Elvis Birthplace draws fans from around the world to visit the humble, two-room shotgun house where Elvis was born in 1935. On the beautiful grounds are a state-of-the-art museum with exhibits focusing on Elvis’ early years, a Mississippi Blues Trail marker, and a memorial chapel. Elvis’ childhood church, where he first encountered Southern gospel music, was moved to the grounds; a well-produced multimedia presentation lets visitors experience the Assembly of God Pentecostal services of the 1940s.
At the Blue Canoe, order from the extensive craft beer list and the gourmet bar menu, which includes fare such as Caribbean edamame tossed in Jamaican jerk seasoning, and fried chicken sliders with buffalo sauce and whipped bleu cheese. Enjoy live music by talented performers most nights of the week.
Tupelo Hardware is a local, family-owned business in downtown Tupelo where Gladys Presley bought her son, Elvis, his first guitar in 1945, as a birthday present. The boy strummed the new guitar for a while, before his mother paid $7.75 and a 2% sales tax. The rest is history!
