Abstract

In recent months, many have pointed to the role of spatial segregation as a major factor in restricting the life chances of black citizens. Using a dataset of 5.7 million geotagged tweets from Louisville, Kentucky, Taylor Shelton investigates how the spatial inequalities that stem from this segregation play out in practice, finding that people from different sections of the city use the urban landscape in very different ways.
