C seems to indicate that the author helped to spur the literary movement, something that is not impled by the original sentence. D might look awkward in the placement of the phrase 'in 1922', but its the most appropriate place for it.

Initially when I read D, I said this to myself 'the sentence looks good, but thre could be a better way of saying this'. I could not find that better way anywhere else :)

I would go with choice C as it corrects the msiplaced modifier and keeps the tense ocnstant through out.

D has a little problem, it says "by publication in 1922 of Harlem...". It should be more appropriate by wording it "by publicayion of Harlem in 1922..."

What's the OA?

D is strange but gives the information that it's the book that helped and not McKay who helped...

I go for D

D is crisp. In C the "Harlem Shadow" was a book sounds redundant to me. something which is publishes is a book, article, manuscript or something of the like.
