Liz Balmaseda is a nationally acclaimed columnist for The Miami Herald. Her columns explore the political, social, and cultural threads that run through Miami Dade County's diverse communities.

After a varied career in journalism, both with The Miami Herald and with other news organizations, Liz won the Pulitzer Prize for commentary in 1993 for her columns on Cuban American and Haitian issues. Her writings have also earned her many other prestigious awards from a variety of organizations. She also lectures nationally and has appeared on several television shows and documentaries.
