contrast and compare the current anti-obeah legislation of the Bahamas and Jamaica.

Jamaica was the first Anglophone Caribbean colony to outlaw obeah, starting in 1760 with the “Act to Outlaw the Evils arising from the Irregular Assemblies of Slaves. “The country retains a nineteenth century act outlawing obeah. Many other Caribbean countries retain anti-obeah legislation, often modeled on Jamaica’s laws—as we have seen, there are several Bahamian laws that illegalize such practices as fortune-telling or professing to heal or harm through the use of supernatural means. Write an expository research essay of 5 – 6 pages in which you contrast and compare the current anti-obeah legislation of the Bahamas and Jamaica. Your goal is to answer this question: “What can the differences between how obeah is defined in both countries and how obeah-related aspects of life are punished in both countries tell us about the type of harm and the level of harm obeah is understood to pose in Bahamian society?” [5 – 6 pages; include at least 3 scholarly sources in your paper.]
