This week we are joined by sustainability scientist Dr. Zarra Teakola for a discussion about the environment. The first half of the show is dedicated to understanding environmental racism and the effects on marginalized populations in this country.
In the second half of the show, Dr. Teakola shifts her focus to climate change and sustainability. She outlines some of the various issues facing our planet today, as well as some actions that need to be taken to combat them.
Our Way Black History Fact highlights the first sit-in protest of a Whites-Only library in Virginia in 1939 by Samuel Wilbert Tucker.

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.
