  3. 3. About Marcus Books  Marcus Books is the country’s oldest black bookstore. The owners of this culturally and historically significant bookstore are threatened with the prospect of moving unless they can raise the necessary funds before February 28, 2014 to buy their building. Westside Community Services, a Fillmore-based nonprofit organization, has offered to pay more than half of the amount needed to buy the building and keep the store open. Julian Davis and others hope to raise the additional one million dollars using money from the community. The bookstore's supporters also plan to use Fundrise.com to raise money, offering donors a four percent return on their investments.
