In the first part of our show, we discuss the accomplishments of the past 3 years…not only by us, but by the whole country. We take a moment to also acknowledge some of the headlining stories of the week.
In the second half of our show, we discuss the most important things we want people to know after being on air for 3 years. We discuss the myths of Black-on-Black crime, Black fatherlessness, and the calls to action from the movement of 2020.
Our Way Black History Fact highlights Shirley Anita Chisholm…the first Black woman to be elected to the United States Congress and the first Black candidate for a major-party nomination for President of the United States.

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.
