Playwright, Gregory Stieber is gratified to see that the momentum of Fort Wayne Youtheatre's "Young Heroes of Conscience" Series is growing with each new presentation.

This weekend, Fort Wayne Youtheatre is celebrating Black History Month, and its 5th production in the "Young Heroes of Conscience" Series, with the moving story of "Young Harriet Tubman."
