In today's show, we start off by discussing the apprehension of Black Panther Director Ryan Coogler at the bank while attempting to withdraw cash. Him being mistaken for a criminal bank robber is something that hits home for us and it was necessary to discuss it.
The second part of the show holds the discussion surrounding the passing of the Emmett Till Antilynching Act of 2022. This is a more positive discussion and we take the time to celebrate the passing of this piece of legislation--even if it's about 100 years late! Happy Women's History Month...our Way Black History Fact highlights Mary McLeod Bethune!

About Civic Cipher
Civic Cipher is a weekly radio show hosted by Ramses Ja and Q. Ward. This show is dedicated to empowering Black and Brown voices, allowing them to engage directly with their communities as well as the general population. Self-determination is critical to securing a future free of oppressive systems, and Civic Cipher exists to facilitate discussions toward this end. Furthermore, Civic Cipher seeks to inform non-POC allies who may not be privy to these types of discussions and optics. Finally, Civic Cipher seeks to provide long-form conversations in spaces where there is often a lack of significant resources, potent dialogue, or the necessary engagement for facilitating a healthy and productive civil discourse.
