Roland Martin features Marcus Mason as a "Living Legend" on Black America Web. Mason is a lobbyist/political strategist. He's one of many who will be featured during Black History Month.

There were a couple of words you just didn't hear around the Mason house when Marcus Sabastian Mason was growing up in southern California: 'can't do.' And because his parents refused to accept a can't-do attitude, Mason said he learned early to focus more on what he could do in his personal climb.
