This is footage from a Q&A held by Emile YX? (Black Noise, Heal the Hood) at Busboys & Poets in Washington DC directly after a screening of the film 'From B-Boys to Being Men,' which is a documentary about the work Heal the Hood does with youth in the Cape Flats, Cape Town, South Africa. This event was part of the 2010 arts exchange program organized by Nomadic Wax (with funding from the DC Commission for the Arts & Humanities) entitled 'Cape Town 2 DC.' The exchange focused on the collaboration and relationship building between the Cape Town and the Washington DC arts activist communities. Delegates from South Africa consisted of Black Noise's Emile YX? and DJ Thee Angelo. From DC, we had Kokayi, DJ RBI (Words, Beats, Life, Inc), and B-Boy Ironman (Urban Artistry).

Produced by Nomadic Wax, co-sponsors of the exchange included: DC Commission for the Arts & Humanities, Urban Artistry, Hillyer Arts Space, Bloombars, Mageefilms, Asho Productions, One Vs. Many, Sankofa, Busboys & Poets, DCRap.com, World Hip Hop Market, Words, Beats, Life, Heal the Hood, Black Noise, VOICES, Fusicology, Sol Productions, Africa Action, DJ RBI, and Kokayi.

The footage was shot by Megan Keefe (Urban Artistry), Yusuf Harden, and Magee McIlvaine (Nomadic Wax/MageeFilms).

Special Thanks to Meetali Jain, Stacy Willyard, and Emily of Urban Artistry for all their work to make the 2010 Exchange possible.

This event at Busboys & Poets was one of the best events we have put on in DC. Extra special thanks to Urban Artistry for making it such a memorable event for us.
