Maj Toure is the Founder of Black Guns Matter (BGM), which is a group to help urban communities learn their gun rights and responsibilities.
Each BGM event includes demonstrations and discussions with experts including certified firearms instructors, lawyers, and Second Amendment activists. Throughout the nationwide BGM class, Toure, a Philly Hip Hop artist turned activist/Solutionary, sounds the alarm on politicians who espouse that urbanites should trust government to keep them safe, while, simultaneously, politicians have failed to do just that.
“The Second Amendment is color blind, and the human right to self-defense is meant for all people, including oft-forgotten individuals of urban communities,” says Maj Toure, BGM Founder and leader of the group’s 50 state tour.
To date, BGM has reached 17 urban communities from coast to coast including Philadelphia, Compton, Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, and Atlanta. BGM Tour is funded by donors from across the country via a GoFundMe campaign, which has raised over $30K in the past six months.
Maj is a Solutionary Hip Hop artist and activist from North Philly. His following began after he was featured on the cover of the Philadelphia Weekly as “the Prophet of Philadelphia.” He founded the Black Guns Matter movement in 2015 and advocates for 2nd amendment education and information for urban communities. Maj has been featured in the New York Times, Breitbart News, National Public Radio, and NRANews for his out of the box approach to 2nd amendment advocacy.
