Muhammad Shabazz was a character in Cecil Price's recurring nightmare caused by the role he played in the murder of three civil rights workers in Mississippi in 1964. Price's nightmare was built on the idea that the racial hierarchy in Mississippi was inverted. In this setting, Shabazz was a Black Muslim from the North, who, along with fellow Muslim Tariq Abdul-Rashid, traveled to Mississippi to help promote civil rights for whites as part of the Racial Alliance for Complete Equality (RACE).
As the dream would progress, the two Muslims and Price were detained by local law enforcement, and then subsequently murdered. Shabazz would be shot in the head and killed instantly, all the while attempting to reason with his killers and make them realize their actions would accomplish nothing. All along, Shabazz advocated for the rule of law.
As a Muslim and a black man, Shabazz was treated with utter contempt by the black law enforcement officials, who condemned him for his religion and for being a "race traitor" and a "rag-head".
In Price's real life, Shabazz paralleled the murdered Michael Schwerner.
