Rev. Keith O. Williams (born c. 1974) is an associate minister at True Light Missionary Baptist Church, a veteran, and the Vice President of the North Titusville Neighborhood Association. He works as a sales associate at Lowe's and is a freelance web designer.

Williams graduated from Parker High School in 1992 and earned a degree in finance at Alabama State University in 1996. He continued his studies at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia while serving in the U.S. Army. He has also taken on-line courses in biblical studies and web development. He founded Greater Works Business Services in 1998, has volunteered with Junior Achievement and through his church, and co-founded the Voters Legal Justice Watch Group.

Williams challenged incumbent Sheila Tyson for Birmingham City Council District 6 in the 2017 Birmingham municipal election. He was motivated to run by a desire to end the antagonism and secrecy he perceived in City Hall. Williams finished last in the three-way race, with 210 votes.

In 2018, after Tyson left her Birmingham City Council seat vacant to be sworn into the Jefferson County Commission, Williams applied to be appointed by the Council to fill her seat.

Williams was elected Vice President of the North Titusville Neighborhood Association in 2019.

Williams announced his candidacy for Birmingham City Council District 6 on August 25, 2020.
