a - "developed only after when" sounds unidiomatic, plus it has passive voice
b - same as a, the right version should have been "developed only after Harry Truman supported..."
c - ok, no mistakes, something developed after something, parallelism is ok
d - too wordy and awkward
e - "there being" is unidiomatic

C is better than B, so I'll go with C.

Is it okay to use 'after when' as written in Options A and B?

I thought either one - 'after' or 'when', but not both, should be used.

(A) developed only after when civil rights legislation was supported by Harry Truman -> only after when is incorrect
(B) developed only after when Harry Truman supported civil rights legislation -> same as A
(C) developed only after Harry Truman’s support of civil rights legislation -> Correct
(D) develops only at the time after the supporting of civil rights legislation by Harry Truman -> awkward
(E) developed only after there being Harry Truman’s support of civil rights legislation -> being and wordy

No, it is not correct - a preposition MUST be followed by a noun (or a nominal phrase / clause). The clause "when civil rights legislation was supported by Harry Truman" is an adverbial clause, not a noun (or a nominal phrase / clause).
