The Black Guerrilla Family History

Posted by : admin

The Black Guerrilla Family was founded in 1966 by George Jackson. Originally, The Black Guerrilla Family was called the Black Family or the Black Vanguard and were associated with the “Black Mafia.” Some BGF members were formerly associated with the Black Liberation Army, Symbionese Liberation Army, and the Weatherman Underground organization.

The Black Guerrilla Family is the most “politically” oriented of the major prison gangs. It was formed as a Marxist/Maoist/Leninist revolutionary organization with specific goals to eradicate racism, struggle to maintain dignity in prison, and overthrow the U.S. Government.

All members must be Black. The The Black Guerrilla Family has a very strict death oath which requires a life pledge of loyalty to the gang. Prospective members must be nominated by an existing member. The Black Guerrilla Family commonly use different versions of a dragon surrounding a prison tower and holding a correctional officer in its clutches. They will also use a crossed rifle and machete or the letters “BGF.”

The BGF has members nationwide in both state and federal prisons. The gang is strongly organized on both the East and West coasts.

Although the BGF experienced a decline in membership and strength in the 90s, it has recently reorganized and gained substantial power and growth due to its alignment with the 415s, Crips, Bloods, and Black Gangster Disciples. Several members of the Crips and Bloods have recently been found with documentation from “Dove Life” (Crips) and “Blood Line” (Bloods). Both groups are believed to have working alliances with the BGF under these aliases. Members of the 415 gang and BGF have been found with documentation suggesting membership in a group called the “Firm.” The Firm is believed to be a working alliance between the 415 and BGF gangs.

Great article. Does the BGF still publish articles in a political prisoner newspaper called “Prison News Service” published out of Canada? Great work.
