Naijha Wright-Brown was Baltimore Sun’s Top Black Marylander to Watch in 2023 and a 2021 Baltimore Business Journal Enterprising Women of Excellence Honoree. A native New Yorker raised in the South Bronx, Naijha is a people person and loves making connections. Naijha was introduced to gardening, farming, environmentalism, sustainability, and the basics of eating healthy while spending summers in the Berkshires of Massachusetts as a teenager. Naijha has an MBA in Business from the University of Phoenix and is a successful serial entrepreneur. The thought of owning a restaurant never crossed her mind until she relocated to Baltimore in 2005 and met her fellow Verizon Wireless co-worker, now husband, Gregory Brown.

Naijha is a partner and the Marketing Director for The “multi-award-winning” Land of Kush, VeganSoul Bistro based in Baltimore, Maryland, and co-founder of Vegan Soulfest and Maryland Vegan Restaurant Month. She is the Executive Director of the Black Veg Society, a non-profit organization whose mission is to educate predominantly Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities, on the benefits of holistic health, the plant-based diet, and veganism. Naijha is Vice Chair of the Board of the Restaurant Association of Maryland. She has a digital talk show, Naijha Speaks, that helps people on a mission to find their vegan soul through food, people, events, and culture!
