Egypt on the Potomac
A Cultural Field Trip of Washington, D.C.
The Egypt on the Potomac Field Trip is a guided journey through Washington, DC that uncovers secrets hidden in plain sight. Did you know there is information and wisdom embedded throughout the visual make up of the city: in federal building architecture, street alignment, symbols on streets and buildings, and numerical patterns found throughout all of these elements, among others?
By examining this embedded information, and exploring aspects of African mythology, African American, American, and Washington DC history, the Field Trip illuminates the ancient Egyptian influence on the founding fathers of the United States of America, as well as their acknowledgement of the Nile Valley origins of civilization.
The three-hour Field Trip, which is sponsored by IKG Cultural Resource Center and was created by author and cultural historian Anthony T. Browder, consists of video segments and site visits (both on and off the bus). A facilitator guides participants to understand the story of DC’s history that is hidden in plain sight. Educational resources such as DVDs, books, and posters are available for purchase for further study both before and after the Field Trip. See more details.
The Field trip begins and ends at the IKG Cultural Resource Center (1816 12th Street, NW, Washington, DC. It is strongly suggested that you purchase tickets online due to the limited number of seats available. Once tickets have been purchased you will receive an email with specific instructions on picking up your boarding pass on the day of your Field Trip. Please note that we do not mail any Field Trip tickets.
What You Will See

You will understand how the shape, orientation and location of the District of Columbia reveals a plan, crafted by America’s founding fathers, designed to recreate the spiritual essence of Egypt along the Potomac.
The founding fathers of the United States borrowed aspects of Nile Valley symbolism and philosophy and wove them into the heart and soul of their new nation. Their intention was to recreate the spiritual essence of Egyptian civilization in America and along the banks of the Potomac River.
