A message from Mark Stone:

I would like to invite all OU Alumni and Friends of Oakland University to join me on an exciting trip to South Africa. Studying the music and culture of the African continent has been my life’s work. I’ve been fortunate to have made multiple research trips to Ghana, Uganda, and South Africa and recently led an OU student program to Ghana. I hope you can join me as we together explore the awe-inspiring beauty of South Africa and interact with the country’s wonderful and resilient people.
