About the Author

Uva A. Clavijo was born in Havana in 1944. She completed her elementary education in Cuba, but her secondary schooling was divided between the Ruston Academy in Havana and Stone Ridge, Convent of the Sacred Heart in Washington, D.C. She obtained an Associate in Arts from Mercy College in Miami in 1980 and by 1981 had graduated Summa Cum Laude from Biscayne College (now St. Thomas University) with a B.A. in Spanish. In 1984 Clavijo received her M.A. in Spanish literature form the University of Miami, where again she graduated Summa Cum Laude. At Miami she is a doctoral candidate.

Her writing dates to the late fifties when she was a contributor to Diario La Marina and Información. After arriving in the U.S. she also published in the following periodicals, magazines and journals: Diario Las Américas (where she has been a regular since 1961), El Nuevo Herald (previously El Miami Herald), Revista Réplica, West Kendall Gazette, all in Miami; Crítica and Américas (OAS magazine) in Washington, D.C.; La Opinión, 20 de Mayo and La Prensa of Los Angeles; Círculo, Círculo Poético, Cubanacán and El Tiempo in New York; Letras Femeninas in Houston; El Puente in Madrid; and Vista, Nuestro and Hispanic, all of national circulation in the U.S. She has also had her articles distributed by ALA, Agencia Latinoamericana de Prensa, to several newspapers in Latin America. She has written for Hombre de Mundo, Opiniones Latinoamericanas and Vanidades Continental, which are Miami based publications for distribution in Latin America, as well.

Her political activism, so evident in her journalism, has also become manifest in her speeches, her work in several organizations and her leadership in others. As an example of some of her activities in this regard, it is useful to mention that she has participated in numerous radio programs, such as La universidad del aire and Mesa revuelta in Miami, in several television programs on panel discussions, such as Actualidad Semanal (Spanish International Network) and Ante la Prensa (for Channel 51, the Telemundo affiliate in Miami). She is a director and an officer in the Instituto Jacques Maritain de Cuba, and an Of Human Rights member and a member of the Committee of Intellectuals for a Free Cuba, among others. One of her speeches in commemoration of the birth of Cuban poet and patriot, José Martí, was later reproduced in the February 15, 1979 issue of the Congressional Record.
