In the first part of our show, we discuss the police killing of pregnant 21-year-old Ta’Kiya Young in the parking lot of a grocery store in Columbus, Ohio. We discuss the footage seen online and give our response to this senseless tragedy.
In the second half of our show, we discuss the three Black women who are leading the separate charges against the former president for his numerous alleged crimes. We discuss the ways Black women save this country from itself time and again.
Our Way Black History Fact highlights the state of Vermont as it was the first colony in the United States to outlaw Slavery, and often championed initiatives that granted freedoms to Black people that later spread throughout the county.

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.
