The Black P. Stone members refer to each other as “Brothers” or “People” because they live under the “Five Pointed” star. The Black P. Stone used to be known as the Blackstone Rangers, with its leaders being Jeff Fort and Eugene Hairston. The Black P. Stone gang of today has 7 factions which all branched out of the Blackstone Rangers. Of the 7 branches the Almighty Black P. Stone Nation is by far the largest. The Black P. Stone Nation used to have another branch called “Titanic Stones” but Jeff Fort Ordered them killed. The Mickey Cobra Stones was yet another branch of Black P. Stones , Jeff Fort ordered the murder of their leader, and that branch eventually splintered from the Black P. Stone and formed a new gang called the ‘Mickey Cobra Gang”. The BPSN originated, and is based, on the South Side of Chicago in the Woodlawn neighborhood.

As mentioned earlier this gang has strong Islamic influence, thus it comes as no surprise that they use the ‘Five Pointed Star” and the “Crescent Moon’ as their symbols. Another symbol used by this gang is a pyramid showing 21 bricks or rectangles, which represents the original 21 founding members of the gang. Back when the gang was being run by Jeff Fort he had what’s known as the ‘Main 21’ which consisted of 21 members, if any of the members made grave mistakes, Jeff Fort had them violently murdered and replaced.
Eugene “Bull” Hairston was regarded as the supreme leader, while Jeff Fort was regarded as number 2. The table below shows the other founding members of the gang in no particular order.

Though the BPSN is known as “people” and “Brothers” gang, it doesn’t translate into them being allied with all “Brothers” and “People” gang. For instance, one of the BPSN’s dedicated enemies is Mickey Cobras gang which was part of the BPSN and went under the name of Mickey Cobra Stone. Though the Mickey Cobras gang is a fierce enemy of the Black P. Stone, their biggest enemy is considered to be the Gangster Disciples gang. Though they have many enemies, the BPSN also have allies, and two of their biggest allies are the Vice Lords and the Latin Kings.
The Black P Stone nation adopted its Islamic identification after Jeff Fort was release from in the late 1970s. Upon release, Jeff Fort changed his name and the name of the gang to “El Rukn”. The BPSN adopted their Islamic principles from groups such as the Nation of Islam and the Five Percenters. The gang nowadays don’t strongly identify itself with Muslim as it used to while Jeff Fort was the leader though a good amount of the gang is of the Muslim faith. After the September 11 attack on the United States the gang was classified as a threat to homeland security due to their Islamic affiliations.
