Memphis Minnie (geboren als Lizzie 'Kid' Douglas, Algiers, New Orléans, 3 juni 1897 - Memphis 6 augustus 1973) was een Amerikaanse blueszangeres, componiste, songwriter en gitariste.

Zowel haar composities als haar optredens maakten haar al snel beroemd in Amerika, mede omdat ze in die tijd een van de weinige donkere vrouwen was die zich met deze muziek bezighielden. Ze nam 200 liedjes op, de bekendste zijn "Bumble Bee", "Nothing in Rambling",en "Me and My Chauffeur Blues".

Ze overleed op 76-jarige leeftijd en werd begraven in DeSoto County.
