Althea Sunday _Jo Bunton Keel_june 13_FB

Join Althea Center for Engaged Spirituality on June 13th at 10:30 am for our Sunday Gathering.

RSVP is appreciated, but not required. 

All are welcome!

Join us for a very special Sunday in honor of Juneteenth and Black Lives Matter. Our Sunday message will be given by Jo Bunton Keel - a performing artist, educator, and activist in Denver for decades. 
Jo's wisdom and personal stories will make you laugh, cry, feel righteous anger, and bring you through to redemption and hope for a new humanity. 

 

We will also have a special young vocalist, Christopher Weatherall, from our Althea community to share their beautiful songs.  Don't miss this special event!

Jo Bunton-Keel

 

Born and raised near the Ohio River, Jo Bunton-Keel became interested in dance while a student at Ohio University in Athens.  Once in Colorado, she became assistant choreographer for Cleo Parker Robinson Dance, before forming her own Movement Free Dance Company.  Jo was co-founder (with Jimmy Walker) and the artistic director of Eulipions Theatre Company (1982-1996), which was dedicated to encouraging and fostering artistic and cultural works by and about people of color.  Eulipions staged the celebrated regional premieres of The Gospel at Colonus and Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, among many other outstanding productions. 
In the early 1980s, Jo was the first speaker for the newly formed Denver chapter of Black and White Men Together.  She is the proud mother of two sons; her beloved gay son Brett died of AIDS in 1996.  Jo was the earliest supporter of the Althea Center’s LGBTQ program, “Mariposa: Embracing Wholeness,” when it was created in 2017.

Christopher Weatherall

 

Christopher Weatherall is a proud Black Nonbianary Entertainer, Singer, and Writer who is passionate about sharing insight through the power of performance art. Dancing the line between the masculine and feminine they hope that, through demonstrating such freedom of expression, they can encourage others to embrace and admire the beauty of individuality. Dedicated to highlighting the breadth of expression and bringing people together they entertain and educate, ensuring justice for the disadvantaged while spreading love and light in these times of fear and uncertainty.

To our Althea Community:

Regarding pandemic guidelines, the latest message from the CDC states: 

Fully vaccinated people – those who are two weeks past their final dose of a COVID-19 vaccine – can stop wearing masks. And in most indoor settings, masking and social distancing are unnecessary. This would include the Althea Center.

The Board of Althea is continuing to follow Colorado State and CDC guidelines, therefore, masks will not be required to be worn by fully vaccinated people inside our building. We will also remove the orange tape enforcing space between attendees.

However, everyone should be respectful of individuals who may wish to continue wearing masks, keep socially distanced, and avoid hugs. 

If you have questions, please email Sarma at staff@altheacenter.org. She will forward them to Board member Dr. Charlie Foster who works in the medical profession and received immediate CDC guidelines as they changed. He has been our guiding light to make tough decisions about Althean’s safety during this challenging time.
