The Weekly Review or Birmingham Weekly Review was a weekly newspaper published in Birmingham from 1938 to the 1940s. It was founded, published, and edited by Robert Durr from offices at 1622 4th Avenue North. Other staff members included assistant publisher J. H. Williamson, circulation manager Rufus Johnson, and associated city editor J. B. Sims.

The paper printed national wire-service news and features, and also covered local matters, including church, club and society events. Editorials praised advertisers who were known to employ Black workers and treat Black customers fairly. A column by Sims included accounts of violence against Black people.
