The first part of this week's show deals with the lack of charges brought against the officers responsible for killing Amir Locke. Locke was killed in a no-knock raid earlier this year, and many were hoping that his death would be answered for...we provide our reaction to his and other deaths from no-knock raids.
The second part of today's program peels back some of the layers from a viral video of a Black Ft. Lauderdale hotel clerk who called the police on one of his drunken guests...only to be arrested himself by the very police he thought would come to help. Our Way Black History Fact is about the Harlem Hellfighters...a story you don't want to miss!

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.
