Created as part of the war on poverty, the Yale Summer High School brought underprivileged students from across the nation to the Yale Divinity School during the 1960s. 

In 1968 - a time of great national upheaval - a small group of educators redefined the enterprise. Drawing on the "Great books" of Western literature, they tackled sensitive issues of race, tolerance, and personal identity, as they searched for that which eluded the nation - a sense of community and the values which ground people and bind them together.

Walk Right In recreates that summer through first hand accounts, following students from their moment of selection to the culmination of the program to where they are today—a compelling reminder of the importance of inclusive and effective education and its impact across the generations.

“Yale Summer High School this past summer was the greatest experienceI have ever had. It was authentic – 
like with women, radicals, and all kinds of people. It was scary, but that’s the way life is in the United States.”
