D for using the correct past tense for something that happened in a bygone era and for avoiding the ugly usage 'highly' in the given context.

The two actions (interracial tensions and Rosa’s becoming a symbol) are not happening in different time frames. Thus, use of ‘had’ (past perfect tense) is not correct. Therefore, C can be eliminated.
D can be eliminated for the use of simple present tense.
C and E are awkward in the use of ‘highly’.
B, aptly and concisely using the simple past tense, is the best choice.

The non-underlined part of the sentence includes "Rosa Parks became...". The verb became is in a Past Simple form. So, we would like to make verb tenses parallel because there is no need to use Past Perfect or any other "fancy" tense. So, the Past Simple form of the verb run is ran.

The answer is (B).
