Authors Sherrill Williams and Charles Thurman take the reader on a journey to 1950s Kentucky, where small town high school basketball was king and Corky was known as one of the best. The book describes, in detail, the hard-nosed, hard fought battles on the court and the thrilling action of the nation’s second most successful program in wins.
The book also presents Corky’s time in professional baseball, including his struggles in the minor leagues and his time in the big show playing alongside St. Louis great, Stan Musial.
With UnCorked!, readers will gain an appreciation for the hard work, and raw talent, of one of the state’s best athletes of all time and member of the Kentucky High School Basketball Hall of Fame–Corky Withrow.

Freedom's Way: From Slavery to Liberty
ISBN: 0-9773198-1-4

Freedom s WayBy Carlton Jackson

On to Freedom! Author Carlton Jackson has done it again! This time with Freedom's Way, weaving a compelling tale in an epic novel showing the extraordinary efforts to which freedom-loving people will go for their dream of Liberty. In this book, two pre-Civil War era slaves, Ellen and William Craft of Georgia, devise a brave and cunning plan of escape from their life of bondage that is full of intrigue and peril at every turn of this amazing journey.

Could Ellen, who is half white, dressed as a sickly plantation owner going North for "his" health, accompanied by his slave William, ever thread her way through a highly suspicious and adverse territory? Follow their precarious trek as they stay only a step ahead of the slave catchers up the American East Coast, through the Underground Railroad and toward their elusive but undying vision, Freedom.

A wonderful story of hope, tribulation and success! Carlton Jackson brings home the inhumanity of slavery and weaves a fascinating and heart-rending story of human beings whose only desire was justice and equality. While accurately placed mid-nineteenth-century history, Freedom’s Way carries clear messages for the modern day. A must read for all ages!"
