In the first half of today’s show, we discuss the many accomplishments of Black Americans that have made the news in recent weeks! We take a break from the norm to highlight some of the trailblazers and history makers to show that we aren’t just victims of police shootings.
In the second half of the show, we discuss a mental framework known as Standpoint Theory. This theory suggests that we understand that we can only thoroughly articulate the perspectives we have witnessed firsthand. Our Way Black History Fact is dedicated to the first Rosa Parks…named Elizabeth Jennings Graham.

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.
