The Cipher


“One of the things I love the most about my job is meeting Black creators who are using their creativity to challenge the idea that our cultures, experiences, feelings, and forms of expression are obscure codes — like ciphers.” ~ Christabel Nsiah-Buadi

Award-winning audio leader and strategist Christabel Nsiah-Buadi interviews Black creatives worldwide who have reclaimed narratives by telling stories rooted in their cultures and perspectives – even as the world told them not to.

She passes the mic to creative powerhouses like Felicia Pride, Lola Akinmade Åkerström, Freetown Collective, Michael Olatuja | AfriPods CEO Molly Jensen, and Tonya Mosley. Discover how their instincts and desire to be their fullest selves led them to create work and movements that have opened eyes and hearts – and have changed minds.
