Mireille Schwartz's Birthday Celebration

Mireille Schwartz, granddaughter to former UN Ambassador and East African Ugandan Diplomat Apollo Kironde, celebrated her birthday recently in San Francisco with a gathering at her home and The New Eritrea Restaurant. Youssou N'Dour's musicans, Baba Ken Okuolo and The Nigerian Brothers, played a private concert at the event.

Ms. Schwartz (who is the editor of Bientot - a multicultural fashion magazine) is also the great-granddaughter of Sir Apollo Kagwa who was the first African to be knighted by Queen Victoria.
I understand that it was a smashing affair!
Special thanks to Damion Matthews of SFLuxe for the great coverage of this event and the kind note of support for this blog!
Cheers all!
