During Roosevelt’s years in office, Black Americans began voting for Democrats rather than Republicans in national elections, but Black support for Democrats at the state and local levels developed only after when civil rights legislation was supported by Harry Truman.
(A) developed only after when civil rights legislation was supported by Harry Truman
(B) developed only after when Harry Truman supported civil rights legislation
(C) developed only after Harry Truman’s support of civil rights legislation
(D) develops only at the time after the supporting of civil rights legislation by Harry Truman
(E) developed only after there being Harry Truman’s support of civil rights legislation

Which is better between B and C and why ???

C is better.

I believe that the use of 'when' in 'developed only after when ' is redundant, it doesn't add to the meaning, but confuses.

C is more concise, at least looks that way to me.

I feel "support of" in C is wrong. B sounds better to me.

I agree with smashing. "after when" is redundant. Something developed "after another event" rather than "after when another event".

I also agree with Geethu that "support of" is uncommon. We more often hear about "support for" but given that B is more seriously flawed, I would take C over B. I guess support of is equivalent to "support for".
