Sir James Fitz-Allen Mitchell (born 1931) was the Prime Minister of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines from April 1972 to December 8, 1974 and from July 30, 1984 until October 27, 2000. He was a member and a founder of the New Democratic Party. His main political rival was Milton Cato, whom he defeated as leader of the NDP in the 1972 and 1984 elections, but lost the 1974 elections.

One of the longest serving prime ministers in Caribbean history, Mitchell was also foreign minister from 1984 until 1992. He retired voluntarily as Prime Minister in 2000, ahead of the March 2001 parliamentary elections in which his party was defeated.

He wrote an autobiography called Beyond The Islands.
