New Story: an excerpt from Tim Gilmore’s upcoming book about Eartha White

Eartha White has been compared to Mohandas Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Haile Selassie, Jane Addams, and Jesus Christ. Eartha White’s Bedroom tells the story of her best friend, Grayce Bateman, finding her dying in her bedroom on the second floor of the mission she named for her mother.
