Chris Gardner In The Film 'The Pursuit Of Happyness'
In a film based on a true story, Chris Gardner goes through thick and thin to provide for himself and himself. While he struggles with finding a place to stay night to night, the growing issue of homelessness comes to light. It is not a coincidence this film came out when the country had one of its highest homelessness rates ever. We also see how then there was a low number of female and minority employees and in owner positions and although those numbers have risen they are still quite low. However, this film brings to front the best advantage of coming to this country which is pursuing the American dream. Under the worst conditions, in spite of being a single father, hungry, and homeless, Chris Gardner was able to work his way up from intern to opening his own firm which can’t be done in many other places
