San Diego Celebrates Martin Luther King Jr. Day

CBS 8 San Diego -- Hundreds of San Diegans honored the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. Monday by attending events in his honor, including breakfasts and community cleanup projects.

The theme of the 23rd annual All People's Breakfast at the San Diego Convention Center was the power of social media, and how it can be harnessed by activists.

"They have more power at their fingertips to mobilize thousands and millions of people for social change than any (previous) social change movement," said Jehmu Greene, president of the Women's Media Center.

The 16th annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Community Breakfast was held at the Joe & Vi Jacob Center in Valencia Park.

A number of organizations combined to pick up trash in San Diego's Rolando, Chollas Creek, San Carlos and Tierrasanta neighborhoods.

University of San Diego students and employees repainted the Bayside Community Center in Linda Vista and worked on a mural. (Full Story)
