(C) developed only after Harry Trumanâ€™s support of civil rights legislation
(D) develops only at the time after the supporting of civil rights legislation by Harry Truman

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".
