Russell Westbrook talked everything from his sense of style, to the upcoming documentary about the Tulsa Race Massacre, to his Why Not? Foundation and, yes, to his persona off the court with Trevor Noah on Thursday’s show.

Noah hosts “The Daily Social Distancing Show With Trevor Noah” every weeknight at 11 p.m. on Comedy Central. On Thursday, Westbrook made the show along with Ted Cruz’s trip to Cancun and NASA’s Rover on Mars.

The interview came on the heels of the announcement that Westbrook will executive produce a series on the Tulsa Race Massacre on HISTORY Channel. The documentary will release at some point this spring.

“It’s crazy because being in Oklahoma for 11 years, I was able to connect with the people and connect with the history of the community,” Westbrook said. “To me, that’s the most important part. Been able to travel to Tulsa up and back through my years there. I didn’t know anything about the Tulsa Massacre, Black Wall Street, until I got there. Once I heard about it, I was in shock. I was surprised nobody, especially our African-American communities, people that have Black-owned businesses don’t understand and didn’t understand the impact the massacre had on the world and how it can change our future.”
