Black Gangster Disciple Nation

In June of 1969, Larry Hoover and David Barksdale combined Gangster Nation and Black Disciple Nation concepts to create a giant merger known as the “Black Gangster Disciples.”  This alliance became a gang in prison in 1976 when the civil war ended between Larry Hoover supporting BGDs and Jerome Freeman supporting BGDs.  In 1981, the two gangs were established on the streets when Michael “Mickey Bull” Johnson told BGDs they either still BGD or if they were Black Disciple.
