KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A black heart holds a special meaning for two Kansas City, Missouri, sisters.

Seventeen-year-old Amari Lewis and 15-year-old Sa’Mya Lewis sold yard signs Saturday at Donutology that featured a black heart on a white background -- a show of support for the Black Lives Matter movement.

The girls, whose work honors their late brother LJ, said more change is needed for black people in the community.

"When this opportunity was presented to us, we took it immediately,” Amari said, “because we want to make more change. I think we can make even more change in this business."

They were approached earlier this summer by a friend who had created the yard-sign design and was looking for someone to “take on the project,” according to a news release.

Everyone who purchased a sign also received a heart-shaped donut with black icing, the release stated.
