First thing to address : the comparison.
All illogical comparisons must be wrong, so:
B. that of earlier works on slavery, Blassingame in his
C. earlier works on slavery, Blassingame in his
E. the earlier works on slavery, Blassingame in his

Between A and D.
A. Unlike that of earlier works on slavery, Blassingame’s innovative study
D. Unlike earlier works on slavery, Blassingame’s innovative study

"that" is A has no reference. I mean in the comparisons "unlike ____, ____" the next part after the comma must complete the comparison: in D you have "unlike a work, a study" <== correct
Unlike X, Y (comparison X-Y) is the correct construct; unlike THAT of x, Y(comparison THAT-Y)
in A the subject of the comparison is not the work, but is "that" which has no reference. What is that?

That can refer to innovative study also right?

More than correct.

Unlike that=innovative study of earlier works on slavery, Blassingame’s innovative study relies not on the records of White slave owners but on the records of the salves themselves, especially the 70 or so autobiographies and memoirs that have been preserved.

makes no sense at all (unlike the study of works??)
