Born in Jovellanos in the province of Matanzas in 1936, Georgina Herrera has lived in Havana since before the triumph of the Cuban Revolution. Known as a poet, Herrera has also written for radio and television series and authored numerous dramas, in addition to drafting film scripts and a memoir in collaboration with Daisy Rubiera entitled Golpeando la memoria: Testimonio de una poeta cubana afrodescendiente (Ediciones Unión, 2005). Her writing revolves around themes of gender, Afro-Cuban history, and the African legacy. After publishing her first collection of poems, GH, with the press Ediciones El Puente, seven more collections followed: África (Ediciones Manglar y Uvero, 2006), Gentes y cosas (Ediciones Unión, 1974), Granos de sol y luna (Ediciones Unión, 1974), Grande es el tiempo (Ediciones Unión, 1989), Gustadas sensaciones (Ediciones Unión, 1996), Gritos (Torre de Papel, 2004), and Gatos y liebres or Libro de las conciliaciones (Ediciones Unión, 2010). Her work has been translated to various languages and has won much recognition abroad and in Cuba.
