This chapter draws upon field research in Johannesburg to ask the question “What does the transition from apartheid tell us about privilege?” During the apartheid era (1948–94) the state consolidated white racial privilege through the management and production of racially exclusive spaces of work, residence, and leisure. The urban environment was used as a resource to construct and maintain white racial privilege. During the two decades since apartheid ended, space continues to be a key resource by which privilege is constructed and maintained.
