In the first half of the show, we take back the term “woke” by defining it properly for everyone and by examining the attacks against the term and the people associated with it. We shout out Gayle King for our Ebony Excellence segment.
In the second half of the show, we discuss Florida’s H.B. 999 / S.B. 266 and the attacks on education and educators in the state. Our Way Black History Fact tells the story of Kalief Browder.

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.
