A B E have unclear structure, use too many "and", "as well" that make them wordy. It's easy to see that the correct cannot be among them.
Between C and D, C is the correct choice simply because the first part ( that they share in common) "as an educator ... movements" modifies Nannie which has to follow immediately after.

She was an educator, a builder of institutions and organizations, and a major figure in the Black church and secular feminist movements as well, so one of the best-known and most well-respected African Americans of the early twentieth century was Nannie Helen Burroughs.

(A) She was an educator, a builder of institutions and organizations, and a major figure in the Black church and secular feminist movements as well, so one of the best-known and most well-respected African Americans of the early twentieth century was Nannie Helen Burroughs. -- Run on sentence ; also as per the sentence it seems that She and N H Burroughs were two different people
(B) She was an educator, a builder of institutions and organizations, and a major figure in the Black church and secular feminist movements, and Nannie Helen Burroughs also was one of the best-known and well-respected African Americans of the early twentieth century. -Non-sense meaning - NHB was well known and well respected for reasons that had nothing to do with the stuff mentioned earlier in the sentence.
in fact, choice B is quite emphatic about this non-relationship. (the use of 'and' already implies 'separate observations', so that's good enough to rule B out already... but then there's 'also', which puts even more emphasis on the notion of 'ok guys, we're talking about a DIFFERENT IDEA now'!)
(C) As an educator, a builder of institutions and organizations, and a major figure in the Black church and secular feminist movements, Nannie Helen Burroughs was one of the best-known and most well-respected African Americans of the early twentieth century.- Correct
(D) As an educator, a builder of institutions and organizations, and a major figure in the Black church and secular feminist movements, one of the best-known and well-respected African Americans of the early twentieth century was Nannie Helen Burroughs. - opening modifier "as an educator “ makes no sense with the following noun
(E) Being an educator, a builder of institutions and organizations, and a major figure in the Black church and secular feminist movements, one of the best-known and most well-respected African Americans of the early twentieth century was Nannie Helen Burroughs. - opening modifier " being an educator“ makes no sense with the following noun ; usage of being is incorrect

Answer C
