Warrington Hudlin grew up in the notorious city of East St. Louis where he attended an experimental high school affiliated with the legendary artist/activist, Katherine Dunham who helped him get a scholarship to Yale. Hudlin graduated from Yale with special honors as a "Yale Scholar of the House". Years later Hudlin had the great fortune to be mentored by two more legends, Melvin Van Peebles and Harry Belafonte.

Warrington Hudlin's accomplishments are built on the foundation laid by his ancestors, beginning with his great-great-grandfather, Peter Hudlin, who escaped from a slave plantation in Virginia, married an indigenous woman from the Cherokee Nation, and became an agent in the US anti-slavery movement know as the Underground Railroad. Their son, Richard Hudlin (1858-1918) published a newspaper in St. Louis and shortly before is death became one of the first Black persons in the world to start a film production company.
