Sri Ramakrishna was one master whom I know who had conversed with Kali, but this was because of his intense love for God in the form of Kali . His mastery in bhakti yoga enabled this feat for him.
But he went beyond this as well and attained Brahman consciousness and enlightenment through the direction of his Guru Totapuri.
