Wright’s illustrious life has been one in pursuance of diverse passions for gardening, cooking, and ultimately, letting her voice pave the way to a lauded career. Her journey as a graduate of the Natural Gourmet Institute (New York City) has roots in her family’s dedication to their land in Southern Georgia. Generations of the Wright family proudly sang while caring for their land. With C47, she invokes her relationship with the land to reclaim her power as an African. Providing nourishing meals brings an empowering sense of belonging and change of narrative to the South Side of Chicago.


A cornerstone of historic Bronzeville, entrepreneur and designer Monica Haslip established C47 in honor of legendary botanist and humanitarian Dr. George Washington Carver. Her intention is to create space for people of different backgrounds to come together, break bread, and feel valued while enjoying Wright’s wholesome foods.
