The Vampire Who Drinks Gospel Music: The Stories of Sacred Flow and Sacred Song
By Peter J. Harris
Founder, The Black Man of Happiness Project

$15 + $5 (first class postage and handling)

From darkened movie houses filled with enthusiastic narrators, to the Washington, D.C., campus of Howard University, to covens illuminated by masterful art and hidden in plain sight off the coast of Georgia and outside Ile Ife in West Africa, Sechaba, the Vampire Who Drinks Gospel Music, is haunted by the footsteps of his nemesis, the fearless anthropologist Candace Stallings, whose mission is to rid the world of her enemy’s blasphemous hunger for African American sacred music. Death. Rebirth. History. Ceremony. All unfolding to a swirling, soulful soundtrack of powerful music! Will Sechaba ever learn to Shake and Finger Pop? What mixtape can Candace play to stop the vampire whose blood is spiked with the majesty of sacred flow and sacred song? Peter J. Harris weaves five interlocking stories with the eloquence of a poet, the joyfulness of Richard Pryor schooling Dracula on a midnight stroll, and reminds us why an inspired Terry McMillan included the title story in her seminal anthology Breaking Ice.
