Long before Dan Brown popularized information related to the design of and symbolism in DC with his latest novel, The Lost Symbol, Mr. Browder was explaining its significance to those with ears to hear. (Click here to read about the lecture he gave on his interpretation of The Lost Symbol. Click here to buy the DVD.)
Mr. Browder is the founder and director of IKG Cultural Resource Center and has devoted 28 years researching ancient Egyptian history, science, philosophy and culture. He has traveled to Egypt 45 times since 1980 and is currently participating in the excavation of three 25th Dynasty tombs in Luxor, Egypt with the South Asasif Project. This research has led Mr. Browder to the conclusion that ancient Africans were the architects of civilization and developed the rudiments of what has become the scientific, religious, and philosophical backbone of mankind. It is from this framework that IKG has concentrated its research and disseminated its findings.
Through IKG, Mr. Browder sponsors lectures, seminars, cultural field trips of Washington, D.C., publishes his research, and has conducted study tours to Egypt, West Africa, South Africa and Mexico since 1987.
He is the author of five publications — From The Browder File: 22 Essays on the African American Experience; Nile Valley Contributions To Civilization; Survival Strategies for Africans in America; and Egypt on the Potomac: A Guide to Decoding Egyptian Architecture and Symbolism and Avatar Revisited. He expects to publish a sequel to Nile Valley Contributions to Civilization in the near future.
All of Mr. Browder’s publications are currently being used in elementary, middle, high school and university classrooms throughout the United States and in Ghana, Egypt, Brazil, Turkey, Japan, England and the Caribbean.
