Black Disciple Nation


In the year 1966, David Barksdale, the leader of the Devil’s Disciples/Black Disciples street gang got together with several leaders of African American street gangs on the south side of Chicago and drew up an alliance to fight off the rival Vice Lords and Black P Stones gangs. In 1969, the B.D.N more or less ended when the Black Gangster Disciple Nation alliance was formed and all Disciple gangs merged into one.
