For 16 years, Whitey Bulger was on the FBI’s 10 most wanted list. Books were written about him, movies and documentaries were produced and reams of newsprint were sold. The basis of the narrative came from testimony of fellow criminals who escaped the electric chair and long prison sentences by testifying against him. Not one journalist, author, producer, screenwriter or actor corresponded with or interviewed Bulger. In this course, we will explore Bulger’s own words and the circumstances of his criminality and creation.
