The first part of today’s show is dedicated to discussing the many ways that Republicans rebrand Jesus in their image…without fully acknowledging what Jesus stood for.

The second part of today’s show is spent discussing the statement we’ve all heard before—‘Go back to Africa!’ We ended up with a thread and we felt compelled to share, and discuss so that you will know how to challenge this Eurocentric way of thinking.
Our Way Black History Fact sees us discussing a lesser-known atrocity from this country’s origin story…the forced breeding of enslaved people for profit.

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.
