Presently, Keith is focusing his attention on writing his autobiography and raising funds to support his literacy work with at-risk youth. In December of 2016, for example, Keith auctioned off this painting he made and raised $850, which was used to buy books and literacy materials for at-risk youth caught up in juvenile detention through his Native Sons Literacy Project. This very large painting took him 130 hours to complete! In May 2017, Keith was able to speak to a group of city of Cleveland high schoolers via telephone and donate about 200 books to them, as well as make a sizable contribution to their school library!
Though it was a long shot to begin with, Bomani heard on April 26, 2016, that the US Supreme Court rejected his writ of certiorari and would not hear his case. This meant he would have to wait for his execution date to be scheduled. Here he responds via a 30-second videogram.
In summer of 2017, Keith's new federal attorneys were granted access to and began researching the database of State's evidence, something he has long argued to the courts to allow. In fact, this was the primary argument--that his Brady rights had been violated by the withholding of evidence--at his oral arguments to the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals in December 2014 (who ultimately ruled against him). Those oral arguments can be heard here.
