In the first half of the show, we discuss the Florida Education System’s new standard of education where students will be taught that slavery was a benefit to Black people because it allowed Black people to develop skills. This asinine rebrand of chattel slavery receives a critical examination.
In the second half of the show, we discuss a poll that suggests that Trump voters believe racism against White people is a bigger problem in this country than racism against Black people. Our Way Black History Fact sees us talking about Freddi Washington…a potentially White-Passing Black woman who became famous in the 1920s and 1930s.

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.
