Roberts Cemetery is a small neglected cemetery located off Dugan Avenue in the North Pratt neighborhood of Birmingham. The cemetery was opened around 1910 for African American burials and was in use until at least the 1940s.

In 2008 Birmingham Citizens Advisory Board president Emanuel Ford urged Mayor Larry Langford to find the owners of the cemetery and force them to maintain it properly.
