The term Black July was basically the beginning of the civil war in Sri Lanka. The name refers to the riots in Sri Lanka that took place in July of 1983. The riots started out as a response to a horribly deadly ambush that took place on 23 July 1983. It was headed by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam. That was a Tamil militant group that existed at that time.
