In the 1960's, David Barksdale
formed the Black Gangster Disciple Nation as a rival to the
Blackstone Rangers (now known as the El Rukens). After
the untimely death of David Barksdale, the gang divided into
two groups. Larry Hoover started and still leads the Gangster
Disciples, and Jerome Freeman organized the Black Disciples.
These two gangs remain separated but stand strong under the
six principles of King David Barksdale: Life, Loyalty, Knowledge,
Wisdom, Understanding and Love.
