Bakari was a bright, happy young black man full of hope and promise. An entrepreneur at heart, he went to Zakynthos, Greece upon graduating from the University of Arizona in 2017 for a photo shoot to launch Bakari Luxury Sportswear. Instead of embarking upon his lifelong dream, he was murdered with vengeance by a racially incited mob of Serbian and Greek men. In honor of his legacy, the family introduced Bakari Luxury Sportswear as a cause brand.
Nine men were arrested and tried for murder, but, even with compelling video of the crime, six were convicted of assault, and three were found to be innocent – No Murder Convictions!! DO BLACK LIVES REALLY MATTER?
The prosecutor in Bakari’s case has demanded an appeal that will take place this fall. As we have seen recent protests and social unrest in the United States in response to the unjust murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and many others, there has also been an outcry internationally. Not only is the international community supporting the travesty of justice in the United States, but they are fed up with what is happening around the world. Protests, demonstrations, and acts of solidarity have recently taken place on the streets of Greece and outside the US Embassy. We are asking for your support, coupled with the momentum of the current social justice movement, to continue the fight for justice for Bakari and murder convictions for those responsible for his senseless murder.
