Civic Cipher - Sunday, May 22nd

We spend this week reflecting on last week's mass shooting in Buffalo, NY that left 10 dead in a predominantly African-American community. In the first half of the show, we say the names of the individuals who lost their lives and we review what happened during the shooting at the Top's Grocery Store.

In the second half of the show, we discuss the motivation of the shooter, as well as some of the sources of the general White supremacist ideologies. We also grapple with the fact that the armed shooter was taken alive when that is often not the case for Black people who are themselves unarmed.

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.
