The Tarlesson family celebrates the 3rd annual Chedepo-Grebo cultural festival Sunday, July 3, 2011 in rural Yolo County, Calif. The Tarlesson’s fled war-torn Liberia and settled on the 50-acre Northern California plot, where they grow organic vegetables and spices. Each year since their arrival the family celebrates their good fortune by thanking the community with traditional African food, dance and drums. “This is our Thanksgiving,” said patriarch Roosevelt Tarlesson.
