Poster made in a unknown country against the Duvalier dictatorship. François Duvalier (1907-1971), also known as Papa Doc, was a Haitian politician who served as the President of Haiti from 1957 to 1971.
He was elected president in 1957 on a populist and black nationalist platform. After thwarting a military coup d’état in 1958, his regime rapidly became totalitarian and despotic. An undercover government death squad, the Tonton Macoute indiscriminately killed Duvalier’s opponents; the Tonton Macoute was thought to be so pervasive that Haitians became highly fearful of expressing any form of dissent, even in private. Duvalier further sought to solidify his rule by incorporating elements of Haitian mythology into a personality cult.
