Nancy Morejon is a Cuban author and poet . Her work has won recognition for its themes centered on women and the Afro-Cuban experience. She has written that her father's African heritage and her mother's Chinese and European ancestry gave her an early appreciation of blended dual identity and transculturation, though her prime identity is as an Afro-Caribbean woman. Intellectually prolific, she has produced a number of journalistic, critical, and dramatic works. Some of the most notable have been book-length treatments of another famous Afro-Cuban poet, Nicolas Guillen, which confirmed her as his literary heir. In 1986 she won the Cuban "Premio de la crítica" (Critic's Prize) for Piedra Pulida, and in 2001 won Cuba's National Prize for Literature, a first for a black woman.
