    Running through downtown San Diego, the Martin Luther King Promenade is a vibrant, palm-lined ribbon that parallels an active trolley line along Harbor Drive. The trail provides direct access to many of the city's highlights, and its rich supply of public art, grassy areas, water fountains and people-watching opportunities makes the promenade a San Diego highlight in itself. The "Breaking of the Chains" sculpture by Melvin Edwards gives striking testament to the hard fought path to civil rights. As you approach the monument, you can read many of Dr. King’s most poignant writings emblazened in footstones, then see the over-sized polished metal sculpture which symbolizes breaking the chains of bigotry and discrimination in America; this must-visit attraction is across the street from San Diego Convention Center. The plaque at the foot of the sculpture bears a quote by Dr. Martin Luther King: "Along the way of life, someone must have sense enough and morality enough to cut off the chain of hate. This can only be done by projecting the ethic of love to the center of our lives."
