She had her paper, </p><p>"Redistributing Justice and Balancing the Scales of Truth: An Examination of Law in the Novels of Toni Morrison" accepted </p><p>for the 2009 Conference of the American Literature Association, (Boston, May, 2009). She is the author of African Spiritual </p><p>Traditions in the Novels of Toni Morrison (University of Florida Press, 2009). This work has received critical praise: "Zauditu-</p><p>Selassie is uniquely positioned to write this book, as she is not only a literary critic but also a practicing Obatala priest in the </p><p>Yoruba spiritual tradition and a Mama Nganga in the Kongo spiritual system. She analyzes tensions between communal and </p><p>individual values and moral codes as represented in Morrison's novels. She also uses interviews with and nonfiction written by </p><p>Morrison to further build her critical paradigm." </p><p> Sponsored by: The Department of History, Geography, and Global Studies, The Fanny Jackson Coppin Digital History Institute </p><p>(FJCDHI), The Society of African Women Scholars, Coppin State University, 2500 W.
