As part of our Black History Month programme we will have a conversation with Sheffield's very own Lord Mayor extraordinaire 'Magic Magid'. We will discuss everything from student politics, community activism, identity and the importance of diversity in leadership.

About Magid:
Magid Magid, also known as Magid Mah, (born 26 June 1989) is a British-Somali activist and politician who has served as the Lord Mayor of Sheffield since May 2018. His appointment has attracted significant media attention, as he is the first Somali, the youngest-ever, and the first Green Party councillor to hold the role.

Born in Northern Somalia, Magid came as a child refugee to Britain in 1994. He grew up in Burngreave, Sheffield, and studied aquatic zoology at the University of Hull where he was elected president of Hull University Union. He has worked in digital marketing and was elected as a Green Party councillor on Sheffield City Council in 2016. From 2017 to 2018, he served as Deputy Lord Mayor, and during this period he participated in the third series of the reality show Hunted. In 2018, he was chosen by the council to serve the one-year term as Lord Mayor.
