    Dr. Kokavah Zauditu-Selassie is associate professor of English at Coppin State University, Baltimore. She had her paper,

    "Redistributing Justice and Balancing the Scales of Truth: An Examination of Law in the Novels of Toni Morrison" accepted

    for the 2009 Conference of the American Literature Association, (Boston, May, 2009). She is the author of African Spiritual

    Traditions in the Novels of Toni Morrison (University of Florida Press, 2009). This work has received critical praise: "Zauditu-

    Selassie is uniquely positioned to write this book, as she is not only a literary critic but also a practicing Obatala priest in the

    Yoruba spiritual tradition and a Mama Nganga in the Kongo spiritual system. She analyzes tensions between communal and

    individual values and moral codes as represented in Morrison's novels. She also uses interviews with and nonfiction written by

    Morrison to further build her critical paradigm."
