My project will look at the depiction of the various groups in Jamaica during the nineteenth century. The question I will explore, and answer is, how did the social structures of Jamaica exemplify the social structures of Latin America? This is significant because by doing a case study of Jamaica, a wider analysis of Latin America can be conducted into the social structures between races, economics, and other aspects of Latin American society in the nineteenth century.
