Abstract:This paper examines the policies introduced by the British into colonial Gold Coast (present day Ghana) from the last quarter of the 19th century through the 1940s, and the impact of the policies on the life, traditional values, institutions as well as the political and nationalist consciousness of the indigenous peoples. Further, the paper outlines practical steps and actions taken by the leaders and the politically conscious citizens to translate their consciousness into practical realization of their nationalist aims and goals.
