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.
