Last year came the unveiling of a course at the University of California Los Angeles inspired by Jordan Peele‘s Get Out. Now, the course is available to take online.

The Sunken Place: Racism, Survival, and Black Horror Aesthetic” is now a web seminar offered by Professor Tananarive Due and her husband, author Steven Barnes, according to a report from Gizmodo.

“…so many people have said, ‘Oh, I wish I could take that class,'” Due said. “And we teach classes through webinar, and have for years, and it’s just suddenly like, ‘Well, wait a minute — why don’t we just offer this class online?'”

In a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times, Peele revealed that he once gave up his dream to be a director.

“I left my dream of being a director behind long ago, and I think that was because, while I have a great respect for film, I didn’t really believe there was a place for very many black directors,” Peele said. “I thought it would be harder for me as a person of color to convince someone to let me use their money to make a movie. Many years later after an odyssey through acting and comedy, I came back to my original dream. And the fact that it’s been received the way it has been received teaches me a lot about how I internalized the system.”

Fortunately, that was not the case, with Peele’s film nominated for four Oscars (he is now the fifth black director to be nominated for Best Director).
