A is best answer, i think.
B changes the meaning.
C which is wrong -- as it is case of subjective mood.
D and E awkward and diffrent meaning.

B -> sounds like Marcus is referrring to a particular piece of land in Africa, and not Africa as a whole
C -> sounds like only Africa provided freedom to Marcus and not to the rest of the African blacks
D,E -> we can take them out. Too disjointed and awkward.

A is best.

I too agree with A, as other options are twisting the meaning.
