Abstract:

This paper deals with race, space and leisure travel. It enquires into the differences between African-American and White travel behaviour while challenging existing theoretical explanations for these differences. This work aims to extend previous research on racialized leisure through utilizing a multi-method, multiple data sources approach to illustrate and then elucidate racial differences in behaviour. The findings of the study suggest that racialization of space is the primary factor influencing African-American travel behaviour.
