Civic Cipher - Sunday, November 19th

Today we are joined by Culturalist and Historical Trauma Specialist, Iya Affo. She works as a Trauma Specialist and is a descendant of a long line of traditional healers from Benin Republic, West Africa. Leanna Taylor of the Arizona Pet Project also joins the discussion of identifying generational trauma and determining the effects.

In the second half of our show, we discuss the healing of generational trauma and break down the scientific terms that help make the content more approachable for every one of us.

Our Way Black History Fact covers the barrel laugh…the way slaves would hide their laughter on plantations by putting their heads into barrels.

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.
