Stories and facts

Nii Kwabena Bonnie III, also known as Kwamla Theodore Taylor, was a prominent Ghanaian traditional ruler and activist who advocated for the rights of his people on the Gold Coast, a British colony in West Africa.

In 1947, he led an anti-inflation campaign in response to the inflated prices of European-imported goods, rallying support for a boycott nationwide. His influence extended internationally, hosting dignitaries and making history as the first Gold Coaster to tour Buckingham Palace in 1925.
