Black Friday Iranian Political Poster

8 September 1978 [17 Shahrivar 1357] Black Friday Political Poster, Iran (22.5" x 33.5")

This is another political poster I inherited from my professor friend. This date in Iranian history is considered a turning point in the development of the Iranian revolution, when dozens of people were allegedly shot by the shah's soldiers while demonstrating in the streets at Zhaleh Square in Tehran. Like a lot of other things, these events are disputed, as explained briefly by Wikipedia here.
