With the creation of Carter, Clinton, Trump: A Mem-Noir, Pamela Woolford originates the term "mem-noir" and also creates the first memoir video book.
Supported in part by a grant from the Maryland State Arts Council and a NES Artist Residency in Iceland, Carter, Clinton, Trump: A Mem-Noir will be three standalone pieces of art—a Pamela Woolford literary memoir with drawings by editorial cartoonist Walt Carr, a video-book version of the memoir, and an exhibition with augmented-reality performative photos of Woolford and 360° video footage—all provoking the question “What legacy do U.S. presidents leave black Americans through their bigotry against the black race?” In the project Pamela Woolford explores bruises of our nation’s racial history left on Woolford, a black woman from the planned integrated American town of Columbia, Maryland, from girlhood to middle age.​​​​​​​
