The ethnic clashes of Târgu Mureș (also called Black March, Hungarian: Fekete Március)[1] are about the violent incidents against the Hungarian ethnic group in Târgu Mureș and surrounding settlements in Transylvania, Romania in March 1990.

The clashes were the bloodiest inter-ethnic incidents of the post-communist era in Transylvania. It has been an important cultural and political center for the Hungarian minority in Transylvania.[2]
