The origin of manga: Storytelling Man

From Japan's PingMag: a feature on Tameharu Nagata, one of Tokyo's last remaining traditional kamishibai storytellers. Great pictures of his stories (he's got 700 different ones!), as well as his cart.

YouTube: Storytelling in Jonesborough TN

Promotional video for the National Storytelling Festival and International Storytelling Center in Jonesborough, Tennessee. Some nice archival photos of performers and audience members from the early years. Can you recognize the storytellers in their 1973 fashions?
