“How dare you stand up in a world ran by men?”
Nana Yaa Asantewaa is no ordinary woman.
The British Empire has invaded the Ashanti Kingdom of Gold Coast. They have kidnapped the cherished King and asked for the divine Golden Stool, which contains the soul of the Ashanti people in return of their beloved King. Nana Yaa Asantewaa is determined to stand up in the midst of all the terrified men and fight to rescue King Prempeh I.
For over 70 years, the Ashanti Warriors have fought and defended their Kingdom against invaders. Mr Frederick Mitchell Hodgson from the British Empire wants to capture the Golden Stool for its power once and for all. This is the final battle but, this time, led by one extraordinary woman.
Representation matters. Nana Yaa and The Golden Stool is the perfect bedtime story for children and educational for all generations.
