Thirty years ago, middle-school student and AIDS patient, Ryan White, was denied an education in Kokomo, Indiana, and what transpired became a saga heard around the world.

This weekend, that story and its message are honored through "The Kid from Kokomo: The Ryan White Story", an original Fort Wayne Youtheatre premiere, written and directed by Gregory Stieber.

WBOI's Julia Meek invited Stieber to share some of his motives and methods for preserving White's legacy.
