Café Histoire : Les "Hussards Noirs" de la République

Monday 5 October 2015 17:30-19:00


The term “Hussards Noirs” was used for the first time in 1913 by Charles Péguy in his novel L’Argent. It refers to the Students-Teachers of the École Normale but also illustrates the teachers’ mission after the vote of Jules Ferry’s school laws: “delete the last, the worst disparity from the birth, the education disparity.” (Jules Ferry in 1870).
