On today's show, we adopt a slightly different format. We share the audio from an interview with LA's Big Boy...for those who have noticed, we had a busy couple of weeks. It all started with this conversation and we hope you enjoy it and gain some additional insight into who we are and what we are trying to do with this platform!
In the second half of the show, we talk about social media and Black culture with Fanbase creator Isaac Hayes III. This conversation gives insight into why control of our narratives is so important and what options we have for owning our platforms. Consideration for today's show was provided by Major Threads menswear www.MajorThreads.com, and Hip Hop Weekly Magazine www.hiphopweekly.com

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.
