The major issue with answer choice (B) is that it downplays the importance of Porter's book about African-American art's links to Africa, the one that the passage devotes almost its entire length to talking about, in favor of the unfinished project mentioned only in the last sentence. And even then, the scope is off: the last sentence describes the project as "exploring the influence of African art on the art of the Western world generally," which would include not just the Americas, but Europe and Oceania as well. So (B), while initially attractive, doesn't fit the idea of being the main point of the passage, which is devoted to illustrating the importance of Porter's book linking African-American and African art.
Hope this clears things up!
