Civic Cipher - Sunday, December 25th

Today's episode begins with us discussing the death of Ronald Greene—the 49-year old who was killed by police 3 years ago. We discuss the delay in releasing the footage and the further delay in having charges filed. We also break down his arrest and the brutality of the officers involved.

The second half of the program deals with the weaponization of police, how the presence of officers affects non-criminal issues, and how Black women often suffer the most under the current law enforcement system. Our Way Black History Fact is dedicated to Lunsford Richardson…the pharmacist behind Vicks Vaporub.

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.
